Yashica’s early movie cameras

Yashica’s 8 U-matic as it appeared when new.

Yashica made some wonderful movie cameras in the 1950s, 60s and into the 1970s. Many of their designs were ahead of their time with lenses made by famous optical companies including Zunow.

My good friend Paul Sokk from Australia has written a comprehensive piece on Yashica’s earliest designs and can be found at http://www.yashicatlr.com/Yashica8.html
