Traduction de Manuel M

At the end of the Sixties, Yashica developed a range of cameras TLR (Twin Lens Reflex: Cameras with reflex centring twin-lenses using the format of film 127, in vogue at the time.

As for most of its cameras TLR Yashica widely took as a starting point the productions of Rollei. With a flash of genius, which will make 20 years later the success of the Swatch watches.:The Yashica 44A was available in many variants of colours including blue, grey and pink. The first “jewel camera”???
There exist several variants of this model, which distinguish them by automation of the system of advance of film, the possibility of using add lenses tele and wide angle, and the presence of a cell.

The collector-users will find in the Yashica 44 a camera with multiple facets: superb in the display cabinet, and excellent compromise on the fiels between the size of negative and the overall dimensions, on condition that finding the film with this format became confidential.
