Yashica Mat TLR Medium Format camera with Original Leather Case. This model is very similar to the popular 124G, the main difference being that there is no light meter on this model. It features a very sharp 80mm 3.5 lens that creates some beautiful bokeh, and is a fantastic alternative to the 124G for anyone wanting to get into medium format photography. The camera is in good cosmetic condition with a few light scratches and scuffs (see photos), but none of these affect the operation of the camera.
Aperture blades are smooth and operate properly across all apertures. The shutter seems to be working accurately across all speeds. Lenses are free of any fungus or haze. There is a fair amount of dust visible in the viewing lens/ground glass, however these do not affect the photos taken. The focus mechanism is smooth, however it feels a little spongy towards infinity.
Overall great working condition for a camera of this age. The camera comes with the original leather case and strap, which is in relatively poor condition. There are scrapes and scratches and once side of the case requires re-stitching (see photos), however the case is still useful for protecting the camera during travel etc. The item "Yashica Mat TLR Medium Format camera with Original Leather Case" is in sale since Sunday, January 31, 2021.
