Chinon CE-4S

 

Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

With the CE-4, in 1980, the M42 screw mount of previous models has given way to a bayonet Pentax K.

The CE-4s, 1981, is an automatic camera with aperture priority. In semi-automatic mode, a LED blinks in the viewfinder in front of the selected shutter speed. A 2nd LED, with a continuous lightning, moves following the aperture changes. When the 2 lights are in juxtaposition, it's good...

About the shutter, we must report a range of shutter speeds wider than what is usually because the fastest shutter speed is 1/2000 per sec, the slowest is 2 seconds. There is a B setting. A knob on the front lets you program the delay of the self-timer. There is a coaxial plug-in for flash and the shoe has an additional contact.

This camera could be delivered with a rare accessory, a data-timer. It is a real typewriter with a full keyboard (but showing no standard presentation of letters, or azerty, or qwerty). This removable back, fully powered by a committed 9 volt battery, can print up to 30 characters in the picture. A setting allows you to select the sensitivity of the inscribing (100 or 400 ASA). It is also possible to record this text and repeat it in several photos. The battery can print more than 800 characters.
