Yashica 124 and TriX

i bought this camera a few weeks ago, and it was in pretty bad shape.
the lens hood doesnt open, or close properly, the magnifying eyepiece is missing and battery terminals for light meter are missing.
despite all that, all mechanical operation appears to be in good working order!
this is the first roll of film i put through it, i was a bit skeptical about the condition of the light seals, but all is good.
Kodak Tri-X 400.

    • Thanks mate! They’re a good camera, a joy to use. I picked up some spare parts for some other model Yashica tlrs, and managed to fix my finder hood, so I’m happy with that now.
