Hello all! Happy Sunday and thanks for stopping by.
Before Yashica was Yashica they were Yashima and Yashima’s first camera was the oddly named Pigeonflex.
Proudly displaying 67 years of dirt, dust, soot, and grime. I’ve since cleaned it up (which was super fun) and as you see it here it was fully working! Credit goes to those talented craftspeople in Suwa, Nagano Prefecture, Japan those many decades ago.
I purchased this from a Japanese seller from Hokkaido, Higashi-ku, Sapporo, Japan a few years back.
A short two years later, this was the first camera from Yashima to carry the Yashica name – confused yet?
Have a beautiful day and be sure to stop by my camera shop hosted by Etsy at http://www.ccstudio2380.com – Chris
