We are Chris and Carol – The Yashica Pentamatic Fanatic(s). We’ve been kicking around this planet since the early 1950s… so we’re vintage just like the cameras we blog about.


We’re die hard Mets fans (can you tell?),  avid photographers, camera collectors, crafters, lovers of almost anything Japanese and retired folk!

Thanks for stopping by and we welcome comments anytime about almost anything! Peace

  1. I had hoped you had written a bit about yourself and your fascination with Yashica cameras. Recently my wife traded her old TLR for a newer Yashica-Mat Twin lens. We both tried 124Gs back in the early 1980s, but moved on. Now I intend to search out a Yashica TLR for myself so we can shoot film together.
    I was saddened when Contax/Yashica folded. They had such a great stable of fun cameras (such as your little “Pet”)
    My blog is about Photography. Thats it…Photography. And I change the subject each week.
    I am really glad I found you and plan on reading your thoughts and viewing your photography (with Yashica I assume) in the future.

  2. Thank you for your kind words and of course thank you for visiting our blog. I’m glad to hear that you intend to visit film photography again and with a Yashica TLR. A site that you may care to visit is my friend Paul’s site at http://www.yashicatlr.com
    Paul’s site is probably the best on the web dedicated to accurate information on anything Yashima-Yashica made in the world of twin-lens reflex cameras. On that site you can find a short bio on Paul and his contributors (myself included).
    I also post on my flickr page as http://www.yashicasailorboy.com (same as this blog but on flickr).
    I intend to spend some time reading your blog as I see you have a wealth of knowledge about photography.
    Best regards, Chris (and Carol)
