A couple of images were recently “discovered” in my image files.
The Yashica Pentamatic ’35’ was Yashica’s first 35mm SLR. Designed with the assistance of Nicca camera which Yashica acquired in 1958.
The Yashica Flex S was the first TLR (twin-lens reflex) to have an attached but uncoupled exposure meter attached. The Minicam flash was a very popular flash unit in the mid-1950s.

Awesome-thanks for sharing these. For years I tossed flash stuff away (I’ll never use this)-now I wish I hadn’t. Like ever ready cases-just ‘in the way’ in1970-but now I’m glad to have them protecting my cameras (especially in a dry climate like So.Cal)

Thanks, Kurt. I like collecting these wonderful bits of photographic history. I agree, many of my current cameras owe their good looks to the hard-working leather cases that kept them protected while I bounced around the world.
