The Yashica Auto Focus Motor is part of the company's line of high quality point-and-shoots from the early era of auto-focus cameras (its primary competition was the Konica C35AF; the Canon Sure Shot; the Nikon L35AF; and the Minolta Hi-Matic AF2). The Auto Focus Motor in built around an excellent 38mm f2.8 lens. The camera also features a pop-up flash, a focus-lock button (essential for when you want your subject to be off-center in the frame), and a self-timer mode. The original 'ever-ready' case and lens cover are included.
The Auto Focus Motor requires two AA batteries (not included).
Condition notes We tested this camera with film and nearly all of the photos were correctly focused and well-exposed. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos). The included 'ever-ready' case shows more significant wear (again, see photos).
