Vintage Yashica-D TLR fitted with an 80mm standard lens. The camera uses 120 film type, with a picture size of 6cm x 6cm. Please see the photos which form the most important part of the description. The camera is in good general cosmetic condition apart from a missing cap to the focus dial (see side photo of the camera) and wear to the case and strap (see photos of the case). Aperture and focus operate smoothly. The photographic lens appears clean and clear The final photograph shows the view through the lower, photographic lens (with the back of the cam era open) and focused on some text to show the image is clean and clear. I have run some simple tests against a stop watch and the 0.5 second and 1 second settings appear to operate the shutter for the correct time - but this is only a quick, simple test so the inaccuracy could easily be 10 or 20%. The B setting works as expected.
Increasing the shutter speed setting does appear to increase the shutter speed as far as I can tell but the actual speeds have not been verified and are not guaranteed. The penultimate photograph in the listing shows the view through the camera viewing screen to demonstrate that the image is bright and focused (there appears to be some dust on the viewing screen which is more noticeable when using the magnifying lens). The camera comes with the original Yashica lens cap and the original Yashica case, which shows some wear. The case stitching appears to be generally intact apart from a 4cm region at the top of one side at the back. Please note t he camera has not been tested with film so the lens and general operation are not guaranteed, although everything appears functional.
