The DIN standard that brought me here, and is probably the most familiar to Americans, is for in-dash car stereo head units. Yet I don't see this example mentioned? Redneb 15:42, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

DIN == Das ist Norm In english:"This is standart"

DIN is something Germans can be proud of!

I agree; as a "run of the mill" American, I have never heard DIN used for anything other than "in-dash car stereo head units".

Carl —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:26, 9 June 2008 (UTC) look at the plugs connecting your mouse and keyboard into your computer. these are DIN. on many television sets and disc players + stereo equip etc. have connections beside the rca's marked as "s-video" seem to be DIN. not %100 on the latter

DIN creation date.[edit]

Was it really 1975?

My dad had an old zeiss camera Kontaflex from the 60's.. I recall the film speeds were marked in DIN, we needed a little chart to convert ASA to DIN film speed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:57, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

You might find DIN film speed helpful. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 00:09, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
