Y-FXD-418.8

$69.99Price
  • Another copy of FX-D, this one is black body, finished in red leather. Arguably the best compact SLR in Yashica FX series, FX-D is an excellent full-featured alternative to more bulky cameras often recommended for photography students. Very ergonomic 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, shares many features with Contax 139.

    FUNCTION
    Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation ($25 value).
