Yashica Flex Model S. Maybe from 1955 or early 1956. First Yashica TLR with built-in exposure meter. Made by Yashima Kogaku Seiki Co., Ltd. Tokyo, Japan, which later became Yashica. The leather case is in excellent condition given its age. The camera is a gem and is a joy to play with.
A close cousin, the Yashicaflex AS-II (below).
Yashima Flex twin-lens reflex camera from the talented craftspeople of Yashima Kogaku Seiki Co., Ltd.
