Comments about Used Yashica Tl-super Slr W/50/1.7 Screw:

I learned 35mm film photography with this camera as I took restoration photos of all details of a 1928 Hudson Essex, before tearing it apart. That often required much more than just a stand off picture. This was overall shots, then closer and closer into macro work. Lighting was not always the best and lots of workarounds were done.

Of course there were family and home project and vacation photos. But one day I found I was automatically adjusting f-stops, changing ISO settings to force results, and all that stuff other settings without thinking about it and getting great photos. This included night time shots in starlit skys and burning and smoldering fires lighting sleeping babies and children before tucking them into their tents. That I got good shots with good coloring indicates the usability of the camera.

The problem today, of course, is the acceptability and editability of digital shots. So it's a whole new ball game. I laid off the Yashica for several years and pulled it out to do some B&W sets. Boy was I surprised at the change in prices between color and b&w.

If you want to explore 35mm film photography, this is an excellent camera to do it with a a very low cost for the camera. Lenses may be another question.
