Yashica Mat-124 with camera strap!

The Yashica Mat-124 is a 6x6 medium format twin lens reflex camera with a Yashinon 80mm f:3.5 lens. Produced in the late 1960s until 1970, this medium format camera uses 120 or 220 film.

The Mat-124 accept Bay 1 accessories, such as those made for the Rolleiflex. Focusing is via a ground glass screen, with a 3x diopter loupe for critical focusing, as well as a sports finder. The focusing screen is used with the camera at waist level. The sportsfinder, incorporated in the focusing hood, is operational by pushing the front cover backwards. According to the instruction booklet, it comes in handy for snapshots or when shooting fast-moving objects at eye level. The Copal SV shutter features speeds 1 to 1/500 sec., plus B. It has a self-timer and flash sync with both electronic x and bulb m modes. They also feature a coupled match-needle exposure meter, although it uses now-discontinued 1.3v mercury cells. They can handle both 120 and 220 film. The focus knob now has a film emulsion-type reminder dial with settings for Day Reversal, Day Negative, Tungsten Reversal, B&W and Empty.

Since the cameras are basically is a Rolleiflex copy, the controls take a similar configuration. Build quality is very good. Yashica’s are considered to be an excellent choice for entry-level medium format.
