Yashica FX-D Chrome / Rust
Quality restored film camera offered at a bargain price, perfect for a beginner film photographer, or someone looking for a spare C/Y mount body. FX-D is 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 a wide range of Carl Zeiss, Contax and other excellent lenses. Seriously under-rated film SLR, made-in-Japan quality. This particular "Special Edition" camera has a few cosmetic blemishes, but is fully functional and will continue to perform for years to come. Nice little workhorse looking for a new home!
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation.
Overall clean and well preserved. There is a dent and a hairline crack on one of top corners, as well as some chrome pitting around prism cover. Clear lettering on the dials. Focusing screen is dust-free. Original leatherette was just replaced with brand new Rust-colored leather.
- Yashica ML 70-210mm f/4.5 zoom lens. Clean glass overall, with a couple of pin-head scratches and small patch of fungus on the periphery of the front element - none of which will affect optical performance. Comes with generic front and rear caps. Nice starter telephoto zoom for wildlife photos.
