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.
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.
Curioser and curioser.
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?
