    Yashica 635 TLR with the 35mm Adapter Kit

    I have a lightly used Yashica 635 TLR for sale. Introduced in 1958, this model was a dual-format model, and could shoot either 120 or 35mm with the adapter kit. The kit alone goes for up to $100 on eBay!

    Both camera and adapter kit are in very good condition, 90% or so. The 35mm take-up spool in the adapter kit is actually from another make of camera - not sure which - but it works with the 635!

    Asking $200. This price includes S/H to the lower 48 states. S/H to other locations will be extra.

    Your sync lever is in the "M" position, which could mean issues if the self timer was used.

    Can you verify if the self timer works?

    RETURN THE LEVER TO "X" BEFORE TRYING IT!!

    Also, is the little glass/plastic piece over the shutter speeds in tact?

    I'll check those out. I don't anticipate any problems.

    Meanwhile, here are a few more pix, including my own specimen redone in red leatherette.

    I could see no problems with either lens; no separation, no fungus, etc. I did see a few tiny bubbles within the glass, but those are common and won't affect the image to any significant degree.

    The self-timer will cock only part-way, giving you about 4-5 seconds of delay. I can see a piece of metal blocking the lever, but haven't investigated beyond that.

    The protective plastic over the shutter speed indicator is intact.

    Why do you have a Voigtlaender badge on your red one?
    A politician is a man who will double cross that bridge when he comes to it.

    That's a very stylized Yashica badge. Sometimes it's hard to figure out which way is up!

    BTW, I found a Voightlander badge on Google. They are very similar in some respects. I have another 635 with a very plain "Y" badge on the hood. Perhaps Voightlander complained about the similarity, and so Yashica went with an obvious "Y" badge.
