The Japanese-made Yashica Mat 124 TLR looks identical to the Rolleicord and Rolleiflex cameras of the same era. Essentially, Yashica took the best features of the Rolleiflex and Rolleicord and did one better - they added a CDS battery-powered light meter, which operates well if you use the Wein MRB625 or PX625 battery in it.
This used camera is a 9/10 cosmetically, with minor spots of paint loss on the body, as shown in the pictures. It takes beautiful images with a vintage look. It has an 80mm f3.5 lens that is clean of fungus, haze, or separation. The focusing screen has been replaced with a bright Rick Oleson screen which allows focusing easily even in low light. The included vintage leather case has wear and tear with scratches on the leather with the leather strap. The stitching on the case is intact, which is somewhat of a rarity given the age of the case.
This camera comes with a 30-day Warranty as it is part of our Select CLAd (cleaned, lubricated & adjusted) Cameras which are overhauled by experts - either retired factory technicians or factory-trained technicians, or well-known in the Film Photography Community or the manufacturer.
Also included is a 1-hour Coaching video call to help you load your first roll of film and understand how to get the best from your camera purchase.
