Yashicamat 124G Review

Close Ups

This post has already been read 4557 times!

The Yashicamat, and other TLR cameras are not so good when it comes to close focussing. I think the closest the yashicamat focuses is 1m, which is standard fare for MF cameras. You can buy close up sets in Bay 1 fitting, these bolt onto the front of the lenses, there is one for the viewing lens (adjusted for parallax) and one for the taking lens. +1 is good for 24-36 inches distance, +2 is good for 18-24 inches. I bought a used Rolleinar set off eBay, and they worked just fine on the yashicamat.

rolleinar 1: the taking filter on the left, the viewing filter on the right (with parallax correction). Make sure the red dot is at the top.
