    For Sale: Yashica-Mat 124G

    Up for sale is one Yashica-Mat 124G TLR.

    Cosmetically it's in quite good condition. There's a bit of paint loss on one of the back edges, but for the most part it looks very nice. There's also a notch on the focus knob, and one next to it. It was used in a dentist's office, so I'm guessing the had a fixed focus distance. Glass is clean, minus a little dust. Oil free aperture.

    Mechanically, the film advance seems alright, and the shutter tests out okay. I did run a roll of film through it at an even spread of shutter speeds, and the exposures looked good. For some reason, trying to use a shutter speed between 4' and 8' seems to fire too quickly, but no other issues that I could find. The film advance is typical for the later Yashicas - no frame overlapping to worry about, but the frame spacing isn't 100% consistent. Shouldn't be anything to worry about, and the action is very smooth and easy. The self-timer is a bit stiff, but works and seems to run steadily, without hanging up.

    Unfortunately, the meter is a dud. I'll send it with a new Wein cell battery, and you're welcome to try and revive it. The contacts for the sides of the battery seem to be broken off, but I tried to bridge this with some wire and had no luck.

    Selling because I use my EM (added a second needle to make it's meter accurate). This is the third 124G I've tried that had a dead meter. I just wanted the coupled meter to improve my speed when taking street shots. I've turned my attention elsewhere at this point.

    Paypal preferred, asking for 100$ shipped.

    Forgive the pictures. My forte is film, not phone. If you'd like a clearer picture let me know and I'll get out the DSLR.

    I'm interested but can you post a clear picture of the lens and maybe an example roll of how the frame spacing is inconsistent?

    Requested photos. Close up shows worst frame spacing. Still not bad.

    Do it. That is a great price and you never regret a bigger neg. And who needs a meter anyway?
