    Yashica A accessories

    Looking for accessories for a Yashica A TLR. Need a lens cap and filters. This camera, as far as I know, does not use the Bay1 caps and filters. It needs 32 mm push-on caps and filters. Any help would be appreciated.

    Good luck. I've been searching for a couple of years now for stuff like that for my "A" with no luck. Let me know if you run across anything. If I happen to find anything, I'll let you know.

    I am fortunate that my A came with the lens cap (a dual affair that covers both the taking and viewing lenses). But finding filters was a bigger challenge.

    The solution I adopted was to start with a slip-on filter that I found in a junk bin at a photo flea-market. I don't recall what it was and that's irrelevant because it was badly scratched. I removed the glass, and the epoxied it to a Cokin A adaptor ring. That allows me to slip the modified Cokin holder onto the taking lens, giving me a wide selection of filters to choose from.

    I did something similar. There just isn't anything out there anymore for 32mm.

    Was exchanging ideas with a collector this week and his comment was to make lens caps. Just bought a minty case for my Yashica A, so it has some protection, now (no lens caps).

    I had one of these cameras but sold it. I still have a Tiffen Series #5 slip on adapter ring that I believe I used on the A. It is marked 31.5mm. I could probably part with it and the Series #5 filters. If interested, PM me.

    Thanks for all the info folks. Sorry it took so long to reply. I have been able to order seperate 32mm lens caps. Maybe what Monophoto did with his slip on will work with a lens cap.

    If you're looking for a Series VI hood, I've got a couple of low cost VI hoods available w/ photos.

    I picked up a Voigtlander slip-on lens hood (part number 310/32) from eBay. It showed up today and fits perfectly on the A. There are no filter threads on it, so I'll probably glue a 55mm UV filter to it and screw in other filters as needed. I seem to recall seeing one of these hoods on KEH's website, but I can't find it now, otherwise I would link to it.
