    Help, my Yashica Mat-124g stopped winding!

    Hi everyone, I recently picked up my Yashica after a brief hiatus of about a month, and to my dismay, the shutter button would stick down and I could no longer advance the winding lever. The last time I had used this camera was knee-deep in snow in Yosemite, and I did notice the shutter button...

    Need help identifying my first camera (Yashica)

    This is my first camera. I'm decent at framing shots and like to take pictures with my Pixel 3A. My mom recently bought me this Yashica. I know very little about film and want to find a manual for this camera or one similar. All I know at the moment is how to pop it open, how to wind up and...

    Yashica 35cc meter issue / battery

    I just picked up a 35cc that was claimed (and seems) to be in really good condition. I loaded a battery in it, battery check reads ok, and the meter definitely works (more light -> faster shutter) but it all seems to be skewing too far to one side of the exposures. I.e., the meter always...

    Wich one should I buy?

    Hi! I'm looking for a 35 mm camera for starting taking photos because I like the way the photos looks taken with a retro camera, and i feel it's more primal and hard to learn. I've been looking for some time now and I found those models: 1. Yashica electro 35 from 1971 with guarantee and bill...
