Camera of Week 23 – Yashica Campus
Campus is a small 35mm rangefinder camera made in 1962 by Yashica. This was very budget model similar to Yashica J, both models are without exposure meter and parallax correction lines. In place of selenium light meter it had plate with “Campus” name on it. Only real change from J model is better shutter, with wider range of shutter speed selection. Available shutter speeds on Campus range from 1s to 1/500th of second, instead of J where range is from 1/25th of sec. to 1/300th of second. Both models also have Bulb mode.
Lens: Yashinon 45mm f2.8 with a 48 mm filter thread. Minimum focusing distance 0.8 m
Price: There are no available Campus models at eBay right now, but Yashica J goes only for couple dollars, so don’t pay much for these. Probably price is same as scrap metal for weight or bricks.
