Yashicaflex A-II made by Yashima

A bit of a confusing title so let me explain. Yashica started off as Yashima and although they called their first twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera the Yashimaflex they quickly changed to Yashicaflex with their subsequent models. Yashima became Yashica in 1958 when the company name matched the camera’s name.

Here’s a rather rare presentation box for the A-II. This box was for the export version of the camera – the domestic market box was slightly different.


This box is original to the camera and it’s from 1955.

I’ll have more about this interesting early camera from Yashima soon. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
