Yashica, 44A 127 TLR roll film camera, c1960

Yashica 44A, a Japanese Twin lens reflex camera for 4 x 4cm on 127 film. This is the second such camera we have had in the collection. The first was by far the best, this one has quite a few issues that are gradually being sorted out. A significant amount of rust has been removed and the lens surrounds and shutter speed setting ring needed re-plating. The focus is badly out at the moment, but the reason for this is not obvious, with so many tasks pending - this camera will need to wait awhile before it finds itself with a film in it again.

In the meantime, the gallery for this camera is taken by the missing example.
