Yashica FX-D SE
Yashica FX-D SE Chrome / Brown Alligator
Another beautifully restored copy of the Yashica FX-D "SE" compact film SLR. Arguably the best camera in Yashica FX series, sharing many features with Contax 139. Very ergonomic, light and easy-to-carry, with aperture-priority shooting, full range of manual shutter speeds, exposure lock and self-timer. Like other FX- series Yashicas, this camera 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 film SLR, quality-made in Japan. This particular camera is a scarce "Special Edition" version, professionally refinished in genuine pigskin leather embossed in "Brown Alligator" pattern.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation (425 value).
MINT-. No brassing, scratches or dents, except one tiny nick on the name plate in front (barely noticeable). Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear of dust and debris, just one hairline cleaning mark in the bottom corner (will not affect performance of the camera in any way). Original leatherette was replaced with genuine leather embossed in "Brown Alligator" pattern - sophisticated and practical.
- Yashica YUS 28mm f/2.8 wide-angle prime lens (made in Japan). MINT- condition, clear glass, no scratches or fungus - beautiful lens, perfect for architecture or landscape photography. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows practically no signs of use. Three 55mm filters are included: Skylight, 80B (Blue) and +3 magnifier, as well as original Yashica front and rear caps for the lens.
- Yashica CS-203 TTL Auto power flash in MINT condition, fully working (batteries not included). Factory manual for the camera, camera strap, body cap and a set of fresh batteries for the meter.
