This is where the madness all began. My dad's 1972 Yashica TL-Electro. I inherited this beauty (my precious)when my dad replaced it with an Olympus compact while I was in high school. He had bought it brand new with all the accessories he could get his hands on at that time. It hung around my neck on a vintage hippy strap and I used this reliable camera consistantly for years. Along with the camera I have a wide array of accessories from a dozen different lens filters, a zoom lens, a closeup lens, the flash unit, a hippy strap, a lens hood, cases and instruction manuals for everything, a large camera bag, everything but the kitchen sink. I still pick it up from time to time slap some black and white film in it and play. On the market they are not worth a whole lot and were quite common but to me it's priceless.

    Henry are you a professional photographer?

    No, only a camera passion although I used to use manual cameras all the time until I got lazy and digital came out. For the most part now I just use a Lumix 10 mp with 12 x zoom and a Leica 25mm lens. The lazy mans way. I do have color film in my 1938 Perfex and black and white film in the Yashica which I still love to play with.
