Yashica MF-2 Super… 1986

We don’t often collect modern Yashica cameras – especially during Yashica’s last days after Kyocera (Kill-a-Yashica) took over.

This one was sent to us by a Flickr friend and as you can see, it’s new in the original box. The MF-2 Super is a DX camera which sensed the DX code on the 35mm film canister and set the appropriate ASA / ISO / DIN.

We haven’t found the time to load a roll of film and check out this little beauty… soon we hope. We like the black, red and gold details on the body and lens and the auto everything (almost) features. As a comparison, we also have the Fujica DL-20 as pictured below in the sales brochure.

The DL-20 is a mid-1990s camera from Fujica. We have the red body model and it would be fun to take the two (Yashica MF-2 Super and the Fujica) out for a side by side photo shoot. Sounds like we’re going to be busy in 2018 shooting a bit more film.

Thanks for your visit!

  1. I just picked up a yashica L-af date if you would like it. The flash doesn’t seem to work, but if you don’t have that one it would add to your collection.


    1. Hello and thanks for your questions. Often with these “older” point and shoot cameras, the capacitors fail to charge for a variety of reasons – sometimes it’s due to a broken connection or more often the flash just fails to charge (or hold a charge). Other than opening up the camera and looking at the connections I know of no other fix. I’m not sure if the flash works on mine. I’ll have to check it out.

  2. does anyone know about the starting focus range of the Yashika MF-2 super DX camera?, like whether the focus starts from 1.5m or 3m to infinite.
