Fully mechanical Yashica TL-Electro with Vivitar 28mm f2.5.

In this kit: 
1) Yashica TL-Electro SLR film camera body.
2) Vivitar 28mm f2.5


The Yashica TL-Electro is the perfect camera for someone looking for a reliable, well-built film camera. It boasts a full-metal construction with virtually no internal electronics to worry about. The metal built also gives it an amazing hefty feel in hand without being too heavy. It also has one of the most satisfying. It is a very minimalistic camera with a classic and timeless look while making it very easy to use.

Focusing is done manually. The viewfinder is bright and big which makes focussing a breeze.
One of the main reasons to get this kit is also due to the lens. This Vivitar 28mm lens is one of the best wide angle lenses you can get for this system. It has amazing and sharp glass that opens all the way to f2.5 making your viewfinder extremely bright and enabling you to shoot in darker conditions.
Due to the age of the Electro's their light meters tend to be burnt out. Fortunately this is not too much of an issue as these cameras function fine without batteries.
This mechanical reliability is one of the main advantages of the Yashica TL-Electro. To meter a scene before taking a picture just use an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone (we recommend myLightmeter), or alternatively the foolproof sunny-16 rule.
