The 635 TLR Meduim Format Camera

In 1958, Yashica manufactured a one and only dual format TLR, the Yashica 635.
It takes 6x6 on 120 rollfilm and 24x36mm on 35mm film (with a special adapter
kit). It has a Copal MVX shutter and a Yashikor 80mm f/3.5 lens. The 635 looks
similar to the Yashica D, except for the additional knobs for 35mm film
operation.

Very old medium format camera. Hard to operate do to the fact it is a twin lense single reflex. When looking through the view finder if the subject is to far to the left you must turn the camera to the right. It is probly 40 years old but still takes good photos.
