The Yashica Partner is a very simple 35 film camera from the early 1980s with a striking 'folding door' design. Here's its original catalog description:

The new Yashica Partner is one of the simplest, easiest-to-operate cameras ever available for the traveling, fun-loving photographer. Extremely small and light, the Yashica Partner fits right into your pocket and is ready for action in seconds.

Just flip down the lens cover and you've got a classic looking 35mm leaf shutter camera offering the advantages of fixed focus and weather-symbol exposure control.

Just select the weather symbol appropriate to your condi-tions, point and shoot. Focus is accurate within a range from 1.5 meters (5 ft.) to infinity, and the f/4 38 mm Yashica lens (which retracts when the cover is closed) provides outstanding sharpness and clarity.

There's no fear of accidently tripping the shutter, since the flip-open cover also operates as an automatic shutter lock.

After each shot, a unique film advance wheel, operated quickly by thumb, brings on a fresh frame and activates the shutter mechanism again.

Built-in flash takes care of indoor or evening shots, activated by a simple lever whenever the low-light warning lamp in the viewfinder tells you flash is required. Flash power lets you shoot accurately in a range from 1.2 to 4 meters (3.6 - 12 ft.), at intervals of only about seven seconds.

This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).

Condition Notes

The overall cosmetic condition is good except for some wear on the camera body from use (see photos). The original case and user manual are included.
