Yashica Half 17 – Classic mid 1960s design

Many thanks to our friend and fellow blogger Peggy at Camera Go Camera for sending us this wonderful classic Yashica. It needs a little work on the slower shutter speeds but it’s super clean and a fun sized camera to boot. We look forward to running a roll through it soon.

Being a half frame 35mm camera means that you can get up to 72 exposures from a standard 36 exposure film cartridge!

One of the more unique and modern looking Yashica logos. We like it better than the western style font that Yashica used for years.

Certainly a nice camera to add any collection of 1960s 35mm cameras. It has such smooth lines and an exceptionally nice finish to the satin chrome.
