I’m sorry

Because we can’t speak english

I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,

but I would like you to understand

Thank you

In this issue, we take a look at the eye-level finder design of YASHICA’s 1978 manual-focus film SLR camera.

YASHICA FRⅡ (Reference product)

This is a film manual focus SLR camera with a steel silver body.

The body’s eye-level finder has a straight-edge design, with each corner treated smooth.

Viewed from the side, the manufacturer’s logo face is an independent shape with a slightly steeper angle from there to the top and a more gradual angle to the rear.
The accessory shoe (strobe bracket) is horizontal.

It is neatly viewed from behind at an angle.

An easy-to-viewfinder is installed.

This time we introduced the eye-level finder of Yashica’s manual focus SLR camera released in 1978.

The maker’s logo section is independent, which gives the camera a more luxurious look.

The good design of the eye-level finder makes the entire body tighter and has a high presence.


I will continue to write columns about designs and unusual features of film cameras that interest me, so please look forward to them!
