Yashica FX-D SE Chrome / Black Frosted Snake
Yashica FX-D is arguably the best compact SLR in Yashica FX series, sharing many features with Contax 139. Very ergonomic, light and easy-to-carry camera, with aperture-priority shooting, full range of manual shutter speeds, exposure lock and self-timer. Like other FX- series Yashicas, this SLR is equipped with a robust metal-leaf quartz-controlled Copal shutter and C/Y lens mount, which allows it to be used with used with a wide range of high quality Carl Zeiss, Yashica and third party lenses. Seriously under-rated camera, made in Japan. This particular camera is a scarce "Special Edition" version, professionally refinished in genuine "Frosted Snake" pattern suede to make it even more unique.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation.
Excellent. No major signs of use, except one small dent on the top corner (see photos). Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. "SE" logo on front rubbed off a little. Original leatherette was replaced with genuine suede in "Black Frosted Snake" pattern - very pleasant to hold.
- Yashica DSB 50mm f/1.9 prime lens (made in Japan). MINT- condition, clear glass, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth.
