Yashica TL Electro-X

One of the most successful SLRs from Yashica – the ‘Pioneer in Electronic Cameras’… the Yashica TL Electro-X. The world’s first electronic single-lens reflex camera.

A random collection of clips from Yashica sales brochures and our eclectic collection of all things Yashica –



‘ITS’ = Integrated Technology System… maybe.


We’ve recently added this hard to find accessory from Yashica. It was still new in its original box! It will be used in our studio for some copy work.


Original box. Lucky find!


The Copy Stand listed for 20,000 JPY in 1971. About $55 USD




Large dealer’s sign. Two sided but non lighted. Ca. 1968


Yashica ‘Sailor Boy’ with another version of the slogan and electron logo. The ‘Sailor Boy’ first made his appearance in 1962.


Elegance on ice.

Do you have something to add to our database about this interesting camera? Please feel free to comment.
