Yashica Mat 124 TLR Camera

YASHICA MAT 124 TLR
PRODUCT ID: MF.110701

OVERVIEW

Since the day our little madecineshop opened our doors, we’ve been promoting the Yashica Mat range of TLRs. The reason is simple – we have yet to find a better performer for the same money! The 124 is the second last model of the Yashica Mat range and frequently regarded as the best thus far!

Made by Yashica from 1968 to 1971, this was the predecessor of the 124G. Many people prefer this model over the 124G for its solid built.
 Karen Nakamura agrees to that too!

The 124 has a four-element, 80mm F3.5 Yashinon taking lens. Focusing is via a ground glass screen, with a 3x diopter loupe for critical focusing, as well as a sports finder. The Copal shutter features speeds 1 to 1/500 sec., plus B.

For those unfamiliar with medium format, the large film size decreases the depth of field of the image for a wonderful “bokeh”, and a finer; richer picture. Look here!
