Yashica FX-3 Super 2000
Latest version of the venerable Yashica FX-3. One of the most basic film SLR's you can buy, this camera is full-proof. Full set of manual shutter speeds, +/- LED meter indicator - that's it. This camera has a robust metal leaf mechanical shutter and will shoot without batteries (only needed for meter operation). This particular version of FX-3 is known for a good quality leatherette, unlike earlier versions of this camera. As all Yashica film cameras of the period, it is equipped with C/Y lens mount, which allows it to be used with used with a vast range of high quality Carl Zeiss, Yashica and third party lenses. Great little beginner's camera, a bargain.
Shutter, meter and film transport all work properly. Light seals are in very good shape.
Very clean, minor scuffs on the bottom, consistent with normal use and the age of the camera. Couple of small areas of paint loss on the film door - please see photos. Focusing screen and viewfinder and bright and clear of dust. Original leatherette is in excellent condition.
- Yashica YUS 135mm f/2.8 prime lens (made in Japan). Excellent shape, with no visible scratches on the optics. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use, no dents, just a minor paint loss on the front rim. The lens comes with generic front and rear caps. Great lens for portraits, close-ups, flower photography.
- Factory camera manual, vintage camera strap (needs a clean), body cap and dedicated Yashica lens case.
