If you’ve followed this website, then you are familiar with the Kickstarter-backed rebirth of the iconic Japanese camera namesake Yashica in the form of the upcoming Y35 digital camera model (you can catch up with this article “The Return of Yashica – Kickstarter Project”). Yashica’s digiFilm vision of an analog past reborn, love it or hate it, was wildly received on Kickstarter – raising over a million dollars in just two days! The recent stretch goal announcement on Kickstarter by the Yashica team to raise funds for an upgrade to the camera’s lens to a F2 lens was also joined by a missive that teased a new metal body and perhaps even a larger sensor for the camera. These two features are interpreted as a response to photographer complaints about the original Y35's proposed body style. Indeed, much of the focus of initial criticisms of the Yashica Y35 centered on the camera’s lack of a metal body and its controversial analog role-playing digiFilm concept.
