Description:

The Yashica T AF is a high end 35mm compact camera introduced in 1985. Shortly after acquiring Yashica in the fall of 1983, Kyocera took advantage of its existing licensing agreement with renowned German lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss AG and began production of the T* series, a successful line of compact cameras that use high quality Carl Zeiss Tessar 35mm lenses with the legendary T* coating. The very first model was the Yashica T AF which was closely followed by this data back-equipped AF variant.

"Kyocera's "T series" cameras are compact cameras equipped with Carl Zeiss T* lenses, which produce high imaging performance. Nine models of the series have been released up until now, starting with the T AF released in 1984. Used in all T series models.

the Yashica T AF has an automatically controlled Carl Zeiss Tessar 35mm f/3.5 T* lens which is protected by a dark translucent cover that only slides back when an exposure is made. The camera has a shutter speed range of 1/30 to 1/700 seconds, is compatible with ISO 50 to 1000 film and, Sliding the top plate to the left reveals the red shutter button along with the grey toggle that starts the Yashica’s self-timer. The grey “FLASH ON” switch on the back of the camera pops the flash out to the side and the adjacent indicator light glows orange when it’s charged and ready to fire.
