My New Baby (Yashica FX-3 Super 2000)

Hi bloggers! I'm so happy to tell you that I got my Yashica FX-3 last week that I bought from a buy-and-sell site available for Filipinos. Just to give you a gist, Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 was released in 1970. Compare with other SLR cameras, it is not as pricey as you think. The good thing about this camera to is that it is very easy to use and very lightweight. Actually, it is my first time to use Single Reflex Lens camera because my camera shelf contains point-and-shoot toy cameras but I salute this camera for being user-friendly. Although it still needs some cleaning (external parts have rust) and lubrication (the self-timer seems to go back to its original position for hours), I'm definitely gonna use it!

Currently loaded with Kodak Color Plus 200

The self-timer is really rusty and needs lubrication





Will post the pictures after I process it. If you're using the same camera, I'd like to know! I need tips! Thank you guys! :)
