The Yashica Mat 124G was made from 1970 to 1986 and was the last TLR that Yashica made. It was a commercial success, featuring a Yashinon 80mm f3.5 lens. Focusing is via a ground glass screen, with a 3x diopter loupe for critical focusing, as well as a sports finder. The focusing screen is used with the camera at waist-level.
The Copal SV shutter features speeds 1 to 1/500 sec., plus B. It has a self-timer and flash sync with both electronic x and bulb m modes. It also features a coupled match-needle exposure meter and can handle both 120 and 220 film.
Since the camera is basically a Rolleiflex copy, the controls take a similar configuration and the Yashica 124G is considered to be an excellent choice for entry-level medium format.
