Yashica Mat 124G TLR Camera

YASHICA MAT 124G
PRODUCT ID: MF.110702

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 124G is the last model of the Yashica Mat range, much similar to it’s famed predecessor. This stealthy black monster’s “G” stands for its improved gold-contacts that are less likely to corrode.

Made by Yashica from 1970 to 1986, this was the last model of the “Mats” and it remains as the top choice among photographers moving into medium format.

The 124G 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!
