Not only is YASHICA making 35mm film, they’re also still bent on making, rebuilding. and reissuing film cameras this year. Unbelievable.
Just in time for the 70th anniversary of its Japanese provenance, the now Hong Kong-based YASHICA is at it again with a new film camera project. Dubbed “YASHICA Absolute”, the company is seemingly unfazed by the digiFilm Y35 fiasco and has already launched the first phase — or “episode” as they decided to call it — with a Kickstarter campaign for the MF-1 “Snapshot Art Camera” and the Yashica 400 35mm negative film to go along with it. All in the name of “The forgotten journey of a timeless art.”
