The Yashica Mat 124G was the last Twin Lens Reflex camera ever produced by Yashica, and a fitting seal to the Yashica 6×6 TLR line. The Mat 124G features a four element F3.5 superior-quality “Yashinon” taking lens and a 3x diopter loupe for critical focusing; for general focusing, it uses a ground glass screen and a sports finder which is designed to be used when shooting fast-moving objects. This camera has a Copal shutter (speeds 1 to 1/500 sec) and a crank advance.
The Yashica Mat 124G also has a distinctive all-black trim versus the Mat 124, and it has a pressure plate that slides–instead of rolling–between 12 exposure and 24 exposure settings. The Mat 124G cameras can accept dual film types and works with Bayonet Type I accessories (such as those made for the Rolleiflex).
The Japanese took a huge lead in camera development with this slick, all-black monster of professional goodness. We highly recommend it to all vintage camera enthusiasts, who are consistently impressed by the quality of shots taken by this camera. The Yashica Mat124G is featured in Gear Patrol’s list of the 22 best vintage cameras to buy.
