N°258 : Yashica A

Yashica A
Originally uploaded by ishoothorizon

The japanese response to the succes of the german Rollei's and Rolleicords. The Yashica A, basic and rather nicely build copy. Simple tlr with separate filmwinder and shutter-clocking, a bit confusing when, for one or another reason, you forget to rewind and clock the mechanism, you get double exposure, you rewind but you forget to clock, you miss 'l'instant décisif".

Thanks to Pascal Blondiau to remind me, I have this one, in my collection.
