Yashica FX3 Super
Yashica FX-3 Super Black
Freshly restored, this Yashica FX-3 is a direct successor to a popular FX-3 and will shoot without batteries. Meter trigger switch has been integrated into the shutter release button in this model. The only other difference between FX-3 and FX-3 Super is the integrated finger grip in the latter model. Perfect tool to learn photography, this camera features 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. Made in Japan.
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, just some brassing on the bottom and sides. Markings on the shutter speed dial have rubbed off partially, but still perfectly legible. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clear with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (no effect on function). Original leatherette professionally replaced with brand new black leatherette.
- Two lenses: Lenmar 28mm f/2.8 wide-angle and Tamron 80-210 f/3.8-4.0 telephoto zoom. Both lenses are in EXC condition. Clear glass, no noticeable scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrels shows minor wear. There is a shallow dent on the front rim of the wide-angle lens, barely noticeable. New generic front caps are included.
- Set of fresh batteries for the camera and a roll of film (expired, use at your risk).
