Yashica FX-3 Black / Beige
One of the most basic film cameras, FX-3 will shoot without batteries! Equipped with a robust metal-leaf mechanical shutter and C/Y lens mount, compatible with a wide range of high quality Carl Zeiss, Yashica and third party lenses - this is a great camera for a beginner photographer, learning to shoot film properly - very simple and easy to operate. Made in Japan quality, restored for your enjoyment.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation ($25 value).
EXC, no dents or major scratches. There is a small hairline crack on the top, under the hot shoe (not structurally critical). Some brassing on the bottom, consistent with normal use and age of the camera. Markings on the shutter speed dial are bright and sharp. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clear with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (no effect on function). Original leatherette professionally replaced with Beige-colored leather, which looks great with black body.
