Previously, we reported about Yashica Y35 backers finally starting to receive their cameras after some delays. However, those who have gotten their hands on it and tested it out were very unhappy about it. A lot say that the build quality isn’t good at all, and it’s overall more of a toy than a camera. The comments section of the Kickstarter campaign is also still getting angry feedback and reports of issues from backers. As unboxing videos and reviews have started pouring in, we believe this particular video (and its follow-up) is among the angriest, and most likely speaks for every backer’s disappointment over this camera.
In a quick video review, the folks of Point&ShootClub on YouTube gave a rundown of the issues they found on the Yashica Y35 digiFilm camera, some of which have also been mentioned in the Kickstarter campaign. If you’re curious about how bad the camera really is, go ahead and watch the review below:
The rage apparently doesn’t end there. Several days after, they posted another video, this time a disassembly review that mostly confirms how crappy the Yashica Y35 digiFilm camera really is:
The first video is mostly about the disbelief of the poor build quality and the multitude of issues that come with it. But the second video is all about taking apart the camera to find out, once and for all, how it was made — because there’s nothing else to do with a camera they found to be a piece of junk. I don’t know about you, but I think there’s more anger in the follow-up video than the first. It’s easy to imagine them tearing it apart to vent out all the anger and just have some sort of closure.
Essentially, if you’re curious about what’s inside this flimsy camera and the digiFilm cartridges and how they were made, they already did the job for you.
If you’re yet to receive your Yashica Y35 digiFilm camera, let these videos help manage your expectations!
