Yashica FX-3 Black / Sand Dot
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 +/- 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 well preserved - no dents or major scratches, just minor brassing on the bottom panel. Shutter fires properly at all speeds, film transport, self-timer and meter all work well. Viewfinder and focusing screen are dust-free and bright. Original deteriorated leatherette on this body was professionally replaced with genuine leather in Sand Dot pattern. Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed as well. This camera comes with Yashica ML 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens. Rarely seen on the market, this is a high quality multi-coated lens, made in Japan and typically sells for $60-70 on its own. Glass is pristine, no scratches or fungus. No oil on the aperture blades, the action is snappy. The barrel shows minimal signs of use, just very minor paint loss on the front rim. Skylight filter and both generic caps for the lens, fresh batteries for the meter and Yashica camera strap are included. Excellent value in this made-in-Japan film SLR, great to learn photography.
