Yashica’s Sailor Boy gone tropical over the new Electro 35 electronic exposure 35 mm rangefinder camera. Found this guy on a neat beach bag that I acquired from Japan recently.

Neat beach bag with Yashica's Sailor Boy on it. From around 1966 or so.

Cool (and rather large) beach bag with Yashica’s Sailor Boy on it. From around 1966 or so. The bag stands about 49 cm tall and the Sailor Boy is about 15 cm tall. Made of heavy duty vinyl, it’s held up rather well over the years.

Original Yashica Pentamatic S Box

A rather rare look at a Pentamatic S box…

Not often seen Yashica Pentamatic S original box fromound 1961. This box features an actual image (photograph) of a "S" body and lens on the box lid. The lens is from an early release (serial number is from 1959) series more likely found on the original Pentamatic released in mid 1960. The box came to me from Tokyo and is now part of my collection. It does need some restoration work done on the flaps and the hinge area of the lid... otherwise it's in pretty good condition overall.

Not often seen Yashica Pentamatic S original box from around 1961. This box features an actual image (photograph) of a Pentamatic S and lens on the box lid. The lens is from an early release (at least by serial number which is from 1959) series more likely found on the original Pentamatic released in mid 1960. The box came to me from Tokyo and is now part of my collection. It does need some restoration work done on the flaps and the hinge area of the lid… otherwise it’s in pretty good condition overall. It is a strong departure from the original Pentamatic box which was its own unique design and style. This box follows in line with what became the “standard” Yashica box for most of their cameras released in the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s.
