The Yashica-12 G a 6×6 medium format twin lens reflex camera for 120 film.
It was made from 1967-1970 by Yashica in Japan.
It offers an 80mm f3.5 Yashinon taking lens and an 80mm f2.8 Yashinon viewing lens.
These are said to be four-element lenses of Tessar design. The taking lens stops down to f32 and is set in a Copal SV shutter that operates from 1/500 to 1 second.The built in lightmeter has ISO settings from 25-400ISO and is turned on by opening the lid
It takes a dreaded, banned 625 mercury battery, but I just dropped in an alkaline 625 cell. Everybody says that messes with your exposures but that’s never been my experience.
The Yashica TLR series (Mat,12 and 24) are pretty much copies of the german equivalent Rolleiflex 6×6 cameras. This camera is a great start in the world of medium format photography.
