Yashica FX3

  • Yashica FX3 Black / Snow Pearl Python

    Excellent fully manual film SLR, Yashica FX-3 is as basic and easy-to-use as they come. You can manually set the shutter from 1 sec to 1/1000 sec, check your exposure using two LEDs in the viewfinder, adjust lens aperture and shoot. The camera doesn't even need batteries to take photos (only needed for the meter), and will accept high-end Contax and Carl Zeiss lenses. Full user manual is available here.

    Body of this camera is in EXC condition - just a few small scuffs here and there from normal use, nothing major that will attract attention. Shutter fires properly at all speeds, film transport, timer and meter all work properly. Viewfinder and focusing screen are dust-free and bright. Original leatherette on this body was replaced with a brand new cover made from genuine pigskin suede in Snow Pearl Python pattern - very striking on a black body. Light seals and mirror guard were replaced ($25 value). Fresh batteries for the meter are provided, as well as factory manual for the camera (not shown).

    The camera is equipped with a Yashica ML 50mm f/1.9 c lens with clean and scratch-free glass, no fungus. Aperture is free from oil and functions properly. The barrel shows minimal signs of use, but there is a small piece of plastic missing from the front rim. This will not affect the lens performance in any way, and the filters will mount properly. Lens comes with original Yashica front cap. excellent starter film camera, fully restored, a bargain.
