Collecting Cameras

I’ve extensively updated my review of a classic twin-lens-reflex camera, the Yashica-12.

This wonderful box offers a pair of 80mm Yashinon lenses that do great work. Although this camera is heavy and a little unwieldy to carry, its controls all work with jeweled precision and are a delight. Read my updated review here.

    • Have you ever shot a TLR? Their shape and weight makes them awkward for walking-around photography. But these Yashicas are so delightful I don’t care!

    One man’s meat is another man’s poison, as the saying goes. As a long-time TLR user, I think they are perfect walking-around cameras. If you will weigh them both, I think you will find the Yahica doesn’t weigh any more than your Nikon F2.
