Yashica Mat-124G

Pinckney, Mich.

When I was a rookie reporter many, many moons ago, I used this camera to cover police and courts.
It took amazing photos, but it took some getting used to. Everything is reversed in the viewfinder,
so it took some practice, especially when you're trying to capture a murder suspect walking the perp line.
Plus it was a hand wind on the side, so you were lucky if you could get off more than one or two shots.

other sizes: small medium large original

My father had one... I remember "touching" it with amazement when I was a kid...

Had one! Nice large image to print with 120 film. Almost like having a full frame sensor in digital.
