In your bag No: 1413, Chris and Carol
Today we have a very simple offering for you. Chris and Carol are a team it seems, and they both have a real love for Yashica cameras. Check it out.
Great camera bag that my lovely wife made for me. Converted from an old messenger style pocketbook, she embroidered the ‘Yashica’ in katakana for an eye catching logo.
The Yashica J-3 in gorgeous black comes straight from Yashica’s factory in Suwa, Nagano Prefecture from early 1963. The matching Auto-Yashinon f/2.0 50mm lens was also part of the limited availability ‘pro-black’ SLR… Yashica’s first ever 35mm SLR in black.
A wonderfully simple camera with a solid feel and a surprisingly accurate exposure meter. The vintage (not spot on to the early 1960s) Sakura color film wraps up a vintage set-up ready to go.
