Yashica 635

Traduction de Manuel M

By walking in the tracks of Rollei TLR, Yashica was until imitating the mistakes of the famous firm of Braunschweig!

When Rollei launched the Rolleikin, kind of  meccano for experienced handymen allowing to use cartridges 135 in Rolleiflex, Yashica followed it, introducing the 635 (contraction of 6 x 6 and 135), delivered in origin in bi--format.
Not more than for Rollei the advantage of this exercise of mechanical style does not appear, if it is not the possibility of making 36 exposures without reloading the camera. Most kindly will see in this system the precursor of the digital zoom (!)
