Yashica Dental-Eye III… is it worth another look?

I had this camera briefly and just couldn’t get it to produce the quality images I was hoping for so I passed it on. If you’re interested in purchasing one, do your homework first to make sure it’s the right camera for your needs. I bought mine back in November 2010 and it was gone by December. It’s a handsome camera and mine came complete with its original case and all of the accessories. The model III is a Kyocera-Yashica model.

The Dental-Eye III is a 35mm SLR with a fixed 100mm f4 macro lens with a built-in ring flash at the end of the lens barrel.

It’s basically a point and shoot automatic exposure camera – so easy to use even a dentist could use it.

The ring flash is made up of three separate flashes that operate together. I have seen where one or more of the flashes have stopped working. Ask the seller if they have tested it first.

The databack can imprint date and time info on the film.

They can be had for not a ton of money – on auction sites they’re all over the map price wise. If you’re interested in one, buy the best condition camera that fits in your budget. Did I mention, do your homework first?

(3-21-2019) Reader Kurt Ingham sent me some pics that he took with his Yashica – I’d say he captured some pretty decent images with his (see below).

Thanks, Kurt for sharing your pics!

This is a direct quote from the instruction manual.

*Please note – “Normal prints obtained at your photo dealer will have the edges cropped slightly narrower than the actual 35mm frame size. To prevent edges of important photographs from being cropped in this way, allow for some extra area around the periphery of the subject when composing in the viewfinder”.

In my experience, all of the prints came back significantly narrower.  Save the hassle when using this camera and do not get the negatives printed from the lab. Scan the negatives and then crop and print.

Leica M4 with Summicron 35mm f2 Lens

Lovely set from 1969. The M4 is considered by many to be the best 35mm rangefinder camera ever made and the black lacquer versions are particularly desirable (less than 800 were made in 1969).

One owner camera and lens purchased new in 1969 in New York City. Gently used and in nearly new condition – this lens is amazing.

Camera as Sculpture

An absolutely stunning camera straight out of the late 1990s – just before the digital revolution took firm hold and sleek camcorders were all the rage. A Yashica-Kyocera Profile 4000ix Zoom APS film camera.

Yashica Profile 4000ix 30-120mm 4x Zoom APS Film Camera in Blue Pearl – 1998

Actually has a glass aspheric lens made by Kyocera. The APS could format 3 image sizes – C – Classic 4×6     H – HDTV 4×7    P – Panorama 4×12

Takes (1) easy to find CR123A 3v lithium battery and still available (although expired) APS film that can still be developed by many online photo labs. Autofocus, Autoexposure, Red-Eye Reduction and 5 Mode Auto Flash.

It features a crazy design and is super small but it fits your hand quite well. If you want to give APS film a try we highly recommend that you find a Profile 4000ix as your camera platform. Don’t confuse this model with the 35mm half-frame Yashica Samurai. Yashica did make an APS camera just like this one and called it the Samurai just to confuse the heck out of everyone and then quickly adopted the Profile name.

DSCF6942

It has a nice bright viewfinder that changes with zoom. The reputation of this camera is good with most people liking the images that are produced. Remember, APS images take a bit to get used to and we recommend that you not have the lab print your images and instead have them scanned. Since APS film is no longer produced what is available has all expired so look for the film with the latest dates on it (I think I just got some “new” Fujifilm 200 with an expiration of 2007).

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to share your APS experiences with us here on the blog!
