Yashica YK

Traduction de Manuel M

Whereas the YL, starts again the traditions of quality and performance of the first “35”; but by trying a little exuberant aesthetics… Yashica propose this inexpensive YK, not very efficient, but which does not lose anything of its quality of manufacture.

- Shutter Copal with  4 speeds: 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 and 1/300 of second
- Lens YASHINON F 2.8/45 mm with 4 elements in 3 groups
- Clear viewfinder with telemetric image pinkish dew of good dimensions, but little contrasted on this specimen.

An abacus of reminder of film used, is present on the back.

Contrary to YL which has a crank of rewinding under its sole, here, we stay with the traditional serrated roller.
A camera in the pure and good tradition of telemetric cameras of the brand, at the end of the Fifties.
It keeps in its aestheticism a part of the exuberance of the YL, but also a great impression of robustness.
This model is very rarely met. It is the first with being engraved YASHICA CO., LTD.

This model, that I present here, bears the n°: 4105862.
