Yashica TL Electro X 35mm SLR Film Camera with Auto Yashinon DS 50mm F/1.7 Fast Prime Lens - Fully Functional
Here we have a fully functional Yashica TL Electro X 35mm film SLR camera with Yashica Auto Yashinon-DS 50mm F/1.7 fast prime standard lens. This camera is fully functional and ready to provide another lifetime of fantastic photos. It shows fairly distracting dust in the viewfinder which will not impact operation or image quality, but because of this blemish the camera is being sold at a discount.
Aside from the mentioned dust, the camera is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, with very few blemishes. The battery compartment, mirror box, and film compartment are all clean and clear without any dust, debris, or corrosion. All knobs, levers, and dials actuate as they should and click nicely into their detents with precision. The metering system works perfectly.
The lens is very nice, with perfect glass, oil-free aperture blades, and clean exterior. The aperture blades snap rapidly into place, the aperture ring rotates with fine mechanical precision, and the focus ring spins with a nicely weighted fluidity.
The Yashica TL Electro X is a 1960s popular and capable mechanical camera with exposure meter assistance. It allows the photographer to control shutter speed and aperture for full creative control, while showing proper exposure via the light meter mounted in the viewfinder.
It uses the m42 universal screw mount, which means all manual-focus universal screw mount lenses will fit this camera. Additionally, the included lens can be fitted to today's mirrorless cameras by way of an inexpensive adapter.
The included fast prime standard lens is a perfect focal length for general purpose photography. It will perfectly capture snapshots, portraits, product shots, landscapes, and most any other type of photo desired by the average shooter. The fast aperture of F/1.7 allows for excellent low-light shooting, perfect for street photography and creating excellent bokeh.
This camera has been thoroughly tested and is guaranteed to work perfectly. It comes with a new battery installed.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
