    The Yashica 635 TLR

    To say that I love this camera is an understatement. I think I love it more than my 'Blad.... is that bad?

    And I really love it when accidents like this happen. I apparently didn't advance it enough and overlapped these images. It works for me though.

    The 635 is a Yashica D with a 35mm insert. I've always thought the D was the best TLR Yashica ever made. It has multiple exposure where the Mats don't, just a basic, no nonsense, no frills camera that is capable of extraordinary images.

    It's a great camera, as you can tell. I had one -- bought it new, which dates me -- and still regret trading it in. If you have the 35mm holder, the 80mm makes a fine portrait lens on that format.

    I do have the 35mm adapter and mask, but haven't used it yet. In fact I have the original case and all accessories - even the Yashica branded cloth satchel of silica gel that keeps the moisture out of the case!

    And I do agree with you Rick, it's just easy to use. Everything is just there, no juggling from hand to hand to change settings - it just works. Not too big, not too small, but just right. And the images it makes are just beautiful.

    Mine shoots fine, but I do want to send it in for a full CLA and de-dusting. The guy whom I bought it from must have kept it inside the vacuum cleaner or something!

    And Tessar... I'll end up buying another before the years up, just to have a backup!

    Stunning photos.. I don't know what is about these TLR camera.. your Yashica, Rolleis. The dynamic range they capture is incredible. Got a pic of your camera? Love to see it.

    I have a Yashica 124G... I like it, but the viewfinder is so dim compared to the hassy...

    That's funny! My 635 is three times brighter than my Hassy.

    Is there a "David Odess" of the Yashicas? Anyone know of someone?
