Yashica FXD Quartz
Ergonomic and compact, Yashica FX-D is a pleasure to use, highly under-rated film SLR. Reliable metal leaf shutter, full range of manual shutter speeds with bright and easy-to-read LED exposure scale in the viewfinder, aperture priority mode, exposure lock, timer - this little camera has everything you will ever need to enjoy shooting film. Arguably the best designed camera of the Yashica FX-series, it shares a lot of features with a Contax 139. In addition to Yashica branded glass, Contax and Carl Zeiss lenses can also be mounted on this camera, which makes it attractive cost-effective alternative to Contax bodies.
Body of this camera is in close to mint condition - no major scratches or dents. Lettering on the dials is crisp and bright. Shutter fires properly at all speeds, film transport, timer and meter all work great. Viewfinder and focusing screen are clear and bright, just a few tiny specs of dust which will not affect your photos. Original leatherette on this body was professionally replaced with genuine pigskin in Navy Python embossed pattern - great looking with chrome-top body. Light seals and mirror guard were replaced ($25 value).
The camera is equipped with a Yashica ML 50mm f/1.9 lens. ML-series prime lenses are highly regarded, sometimes compared to Carl Zeiss product in image quality. The lens is mint, with crystal-clear glass, no fungus or scratches. Aperture is free from oil and functions properly. The barrel shows practically no signs of use. Lens comes with a brand new UV filter and generic front cap. Fresh batteries for the meter are provided with the camera. Original camera strap and Yashica CS-201 auto flash are included as well.The flash syncs and fires properly (requires AA batteries -not included). Finally, authentic Yashica camera case (fair shape) is included in this set. Unique, one-of a-kind made-in-Japan film SLR bundle, at a fraction of a Canon or Nikon cost.
