The Yashica Vintage SLR

Monday, November 12, 2012

Regarding previous post, this vintage Slr belongs to Papa until he gave it to me 5 months ago wee I'm a happy kid! He bought it in 1980s i think he was around 25+ ish that time? so this camera has been 'living' for quite some time i guess. 

Its a SLR where u can change the lens, and it functions exactly like a DSLR meaning boleh adjust aperture, autofocus, ISO yadaa yadaa, tapi without the digital screen and u need films to work it out. Macam agak leceh sebab u need film kan, but owning daddy's 30 y/o camera is a great pleasure. Tapi pemalas like me maybe kene shoot banyak-banyak dulu baru boleh pergi cuci. And below are couples of  instant indoor and outdoor shots.



One thing I'm impressed with this camera is, eventhough dah lama and no autocleaning, tapi ruang dalam lens tu tak berhabuk. Maybe because of the strong base sebab Yashica was the one who came out with the very first SLR even before canon/nikon/kodak. But i wonder why the brand has collapsed. The good thing about this cam is, it feels really nice to hold, and body dia solid, so its quite responsive and comfortable. And the image shot? wasnt dissapointed at all. Cuma kadang-kadang ada slight noise dekat gambar, tapi I'm presuming that this is normal for camera of that generation? I have no idea.

another outdoor shot from this cam (different film).

Still exploring on how to use it to the max. Loving the cam! Thanks Pa! :D
