The FX-3 was a very popular, manually-operated, 35mm single lens reflex camera, released by Yashica in 1979, and built by Cosina. It has a vertical metal-bladed mechanical focal plane shutter with speeds up to 1/1000, an exposure meter with a simple 3-LED reading in the viewfinder, and no automatic metering or focusing modes. The camera is very compact and lightweight for an SLR design, and weighs about 1 pound (450 grams). One of the camera's greatest attributes is that it will accept all manual-focus Yashica / Contax lenses, including the superb Carl Zeiss T* lenses intended for the Contax line. The FX-3 was available only in black, though there was also an otherwise identical FX-7 model that came in a chrome finish.

If the Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 isn't on your radar for mechanical 35mm cameras, it should be. This SLR is the definition of elegant essentials with no frills.
Starting with the shutter itself, the Super 2000 features a vertical metal-bladed mechanical focal plane shutter with speeds up to 1/2000th. Even though it has an exposure meter with a 3-LED readout in the viewfinder, the camera doesn't relay on its batteries to operate. That's because the shutter has a classic all-mechanical design. So regardless of where you are, you can depend on the Super 2000 to fire.
