Yashicaflex Rookie 1956
All of our ‘Rookie Stuff’ together for this display. As a Japanese domestic market only camera, the Rookie is a rather unique find outside of Japan.
Wonderfully fun camera to use… always gets strange looks whenever it’s out and about.
1959 gray Yashica-A and 1956 Yashicaflex Rookie. Two wonderfully simple twin-lens reflex (TLR) cameras from Yashima-Yashica. These two have held up very nicely over these many years.
Probably one of the oddest names for a camera from Yashica (and they’ve had a bunch). If we use our western definition of the word “rookie” it would appear that Yashica was naming a simple to use camera that first-time photographers would be comfortable with. The Rookie was not available outside of Japan.

Hope your day is filled with “happy clouds”!
Happy Sunday everyone! Here are some interesting items we’ve added to our shop over this past week – you can see them in more detail at http://www.ccstudio2380.com
Argus C3 Match-Matic 35mm film camera from the 1800s – just kidding, 1960s. It has such a distinctive style it’s sure to get some looks when you’re out and about with it. Made in Michigan.
The flash unit is actually very well designed and has a few neat tricks hidden inside. Affectionally was known as “the Brick”.
From 1958 the Wollensak Eye-Matic Model 46 (C-46) 8mm movie camera. Featuring a three lens turret with a normal, wide-angle, and telephoto lens. Direct from Chicago to the world.
Classic Kodak Tourist 620 roll film medium format camera from the late 1940s. Proudly made by the good folks of Rochester, New York. You can still buy 620 film in both black and white and color.
The Tourist takes eight exposures from 620 film each a big 2 1/4 by 3 1/4 inches (6 x 9 cm).
Made in Boston in 1936. The Keystone Model K-8. This fully functioning 8mm movie camera is a real classic – it features a Wollensak f3.5 Cine Velostigmat lens with a rare Bell & Howell yellow filter.
Talk about old school movie making. This camera is 82 years old and runs perfectly.
Beautiful “Hippie” style woven cloth camera strap from 1971. Far out man!
From 1972 – a classic from Polaroid. The Model 420 features a 2 element, 114mm f/8.8 lens and Polaroid Focused Flash (a GE flashcube in a louvered box). This Polaroid uses Fujifilm FP-100C film (2 1/4 by 3 1/4 inch) which is still available (although no longer made) so supplies will eventually run out.
Not made in the U.S.A. but sold by Montgomery Ward in 1955. Made by what was to become the Beauty Camera Company of Tokyo.
The Ward 35 was the same camera as the popular Beauty 35 sold in Japan. A simple 35mm viewfinder camera with a fast f/2.8 45mm lens.
So there you have it – all new in our online store this week. You can find them at https://www.ccstudio2380.com
It’s a great way to get into film photography or add to your collection of vintage cameras at very affordable prices.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit our shop!

Camera: Nicca 3-S with Nikkor-H.C f/2 5cm Lens on Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia X-Tra 800 Color Negative Film
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
Camera: Fujifilm X-A10 with Vivitar Series 1 f3.5 70-210mm Zoom Lens
The image is taken from about 10 feet inside my home through a dirty window looking out to the rocks in the garden (at 210mm). Not bad for a 40-year-old Vivitar lens!
Have a peaceful day!
