    FS: Yashica 44 with case

    Clearing out some GAS, this is my second Yashica44, this one has a slight defect at infinity the bottom left edge of the lens board doesn't fully retract so the upper right side of the image can have some out of focus area, someone just needs to bend the front board properly, I solved the issue by just holding down my finger on the board to keep it flat and it seemed to work fine. Also the viewfinder is missing it's screws (came like that believe it or not) and I just used gaffers tape to keep it in place and that worked fine. Anyway I took many fine pictures with it but I don't need two. Lens elements are beautiful, copal shutter etc. Case is in rough shape but protects the camera.

    Second post with images I've taken with it. I know the body is in rough shape but the lens is really clean which is the important part, comes with a take up spool.

    Seriously, I would be interested, if we could figure out cheap shipping.

    Use Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA 06606 and if you can find a shipper I could drop it off with them Monday.

    International First class parcel is surprisingly inexpensive. Though it does not allow insurance or tracking.

    Thanks, these cameras are fairly available on eBay, I'm thinking CONUS buyers would be more interested just based on shipping alone. This is a first comes with actual (or theoretical, I will even accept bitcoin if someone shows me how to make an account hah!) cash, first served kind of deal.

    Not in Europe. They do appear sometimes, but not often. I guess japanese cameras begun to spread first in the US, than in Europe. Models from the 50s and 60s are a lot easier to find in the USA than in Europe. Also for the Yashica 44 I think it is true it was not very sought after, given the Baby Rollei was avaible.
