Yashica’s come­back dis­ap­points

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

JUST over a year ago, much ex­cite­ment sur­rounded the Kick­starter launch of Yashica’s new dig­i­tal cam­era, the Y35, which used fake rolls of film con­tain­ing cam­era set­tings, rather than be­ing able to change them via di­als or but­tons.

Rais­ing al­most £1 mil­lion, back­ers are now start­ing to re­ceive the cam­eras, but it’s fair to say the re­ac­tion has been far from pos­i­tive.

More than 4,000 com­ments have been posted to the cam­paign web page, with huge num­bers com­plain­ing about poor im­age qual­ity and build qual­ity.

Re­view­ers and jour­nal­ists have also been less than kind to the Y35, so per­haps it’s one to strike from your Christ­mas wish list.
