Yashica FX-D Black / Black pigskin
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, Contax, Yashica and third party lenses. Seriously under-rated camera, made in Japan. This particular camera was just professionally refinished in genuine pigskin leather and is ready to shoot!
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation.
Excellent. Clean overall, no dents or major scratches. Some brassing, mostly on the bottom of the camera. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright and fust free. A couple of small and faint vertical black lines are visible through the viewfinder (no effect on function, and out of focus when looking through the camera - barely noticeable). Original leatherette was replaced with genuine black pigskin leather.
- Yashica ML 42-75mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens (made in Japan). Excellent condition, clear glass, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use. Nice circular polarizer filter and new generic front cap are included.
- Hanimex compact flash in very good working condition (batteries not included). Vintage camera strap, Yashica camera case (a bit sticky on the edges) and a set of fresh batteries for the camera.
