    John, the pressure plate is fixed and the tag under it says "use 220 film only", but, and here is the caveat, there is a gold sticker with red trim that states "start 120 film here" and it is the same type of sticker that is used on the back inner edge that indicates the start point for 220 film.

    Thats odd, all the literature I've read (including the Yashica owners manual) all agree that this model Yashica TLR will only accept 220 film, and that the model 12 (brought out one year after the 24)is for 120 only film. Makes me wonder if someone hasn't "modified" this camera to accept 120, or possibly just put a sticker in and it serves no purpose. Every dual film Yashica (and Mamiya TLR) must change the position of the pressure plate to allow for the difference in film/backing thickness.

    Rick, it looks factory to me, as I stated, both of the stickers agree in appearance as to be from the factory.

    update on Yashica 24 enigma

    I think I may have figured out how to upload pics with out the aid of a teen.

    It says 220 only but...

    Here is where the mystery begins... sorry it's fuzzy

    Both the 120 and 220 factory load tags...Yes it is still the 24

    Those "start mark" tags look to me to have been added by a 3rd party - not the manufacturer. I wonder if the camera has been 3rd party adjusted/modified.

    My Mat and 124G have the same tags. The Mat only has the 120 tag tho. It's a mote point until I can get it taking pic's.

    The stickers on the body do look original.

    It's a puzzle, wrapped in a riddle, encased in an enigma. Hmmmmm?

    This is the hole that I was talking about. It is for the light meter and I'm just wondering if it will affect the operation. I don't think it will but who knows?

    Do these pictures make my camera look big?
