The Yashica 109MP is designed for those who would like more freedom in their SLR camera. Several program modes are available including Full Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and a High Speed Program mode. In addition, a built-in motor drive automatically advances and rewinds the film. As in the FX-3 Super 2000, the camera can use both Yashica mount lenses and world renowned Carl Zeiss T* lenses.

It's a good learner's camera. Nothing fancy. What is up with this other guy giving it one and a half stars though. Did this camera kick sand in your face and steal your girl friend?

Yashica 35mm SLR manual focus cameras were re-tooled as a 'budget' line after Kyocera took over Yashica, and it shows in the 107-108-109 series of cameras. Though possessing a built-in (and slow) winder, these SLRS are much more lightly built and less full-featured than older Yashicas like the FX-103 Program and FR-1, and more complicated than the FX-3, and therefore tend to have more mechanical malfunctions. No parts available means a used body probably isn't a good bet.

Cannot choose the desired ISO to push or pull. Limited options and functions.

That's a good SLR camera for beginners. There is a lot of lens available and acessories. Its focus is manual and there's aperture priority and shutter speed prority as well as manual mode.
