Yashica’s First Radios – 1959

Most people don’t realize that Yashica made a wide range of electronic and electrical items in the 1950s.

Although I’m not sure that these were completely assembled at Yashica’s factory in Nagano Prefecture. They were known as a maker of fine twin-lens reflex (TLR) film cameras during much of the 1950s, but Yashica made and sold 8mm movie projectors and editors as well so it would seem logical that they would make some early consumer products – in this case, the Yashica YT-100 and the bigger and more powerful YT-300.

Not often seen together as these have become extremely hard to find 60 years later


The last time these two were photographed together as the YT-100 sold yesterday to another collector. Thank you for your purchase and enjoy your radio!

Fuji Discovery 90 Date Compact 35mm Film Camera – still new in the box!

These modern classics are getting harder to find still new in their boxes (as one would expect). They make perfect additions to your 35mm film camera collections or make the perfect point and shoot street cameras for your walkabouts. This set is ready to shoot with right out of the box! I’ve tested its functions with a fresh battery and everything is working just right. Check out the details in my online store and while there check out the additional pics of this still new camera. I'll ship it via USPS Priority Mail anywhere in the US for $10.95 fully insured. Worldwide shipping also available... please ask for a quote. Thanks, Chris
