The return of Yashica to the market caused quite a buzz when we first brought new to you back in September, and not all of it positive.
Yashica’s quirky, innovative retro film camera Kickstarter concept has faced criticism from photographers that wanted a different type of camera while others have questioned the purpose of the DigiFilm digital faux film roll concept.
This isn’t to say that Yashica did not help to create some of this backlash itself – many thought that the storied Japanese optics maker, which was absent from the market for years, was going to jump back in with some type of mirrorless camera. Sad for those folks, this was not that kind of return for Yashica.
The backers within the Kickstarter community, however, unabashedly adored the concept and have showered the team behind it with over $USD 1 million to bring it to life.
