Yashica’s comeback disappoints
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.
