Yashica FXD Quartz
Yashica FXD Quartz Black / Black Frosted Snake
Very easy-to-use and ergonomic, Yashica FX-D Quartz is perfect for a beginner or a student photographer. Arguably the best-designed and most under-rated Yashica FX-series camera, it shares a lot of features with Contax 139. Accurate electronic metal-leaf shutter, full range of manual shutter speeds with bright and easy-to-read LED exposure scale in the viewfinder, aperture priority mode, self-timer - this little camera has everything you will ever need to enjoy shooting film. In addition to Yashica's own glass, Contax and Carl Zeiss lenses can also be mounted on this camera, which makes it attractive cost-effective alternative to Contax bodies. Full user manual is available here.
This particular unit is in EXC+ condition. No dents or major scratches, just normal wear on the bottom panel and just a touch of brassing on the film door. Lettering on the dials is intact and bright. Shutter fires properly at all speeds, film transport, timer and meter all work great. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear, with just a few tiny specs of dust which will not affect quality of your photos. Light seals and mirror guard are brand new ($25 value). Original cover was professionally replaced with genuine suede in Black Frosted Snake pattern. Very pleasant to touch, thicker than original leatherette, great grip - one of our most popular leathers.
The camera comes with Yashica ML 50mm f/1.9 normal prime lens in EXC++ condition. Yashica ML series lenses are very high quality and often compared to Carl Zeiss glass at a fraction of the price. Lens optics are clean and clear, no fungus or scratches. Aperture is free from oil and closes properly. The barrel is very clean, just one tiny nick on the front rim (will not affect filter mounting). Brand new UV filter and both front and rear caps are included. Fresh batteries for the camera are provided as well, along with original camera strap, body cap, viewfinder cup and Yashica camera case (fair shape). Finally, a Yashica CS-220 Auto flash unit in MINT condition is included in this set. The flash syncs and fires perfectly when used with the camera (requires 4x AA batteries - not supplied). Beautiful film camera, sure to draw a lot of compliments.
