What is a Yashica EZ Zoom 105
The Yashica EZ Zoom 105 is a fully automatic point and shoot with a 38-105mm zoom lens that will produce beautiful photos at the push of a button! It has a built-in flash with various modes and shooting modes such as infinity focus, portrait mode and red-eye reduction. Like most cameras on this period, it will automatically rewind and advance the film for you as well as focusing and exposing for you so all you need to do is point and shoot .
The camera is easy to hold with rubberised buttons on the top to make changes and fire the shutter. The zoom is operated by two side-by-side buttons. You can also set a timed exposure.
The camera also has a tripod mount, dioptric for the viewfinder and auto film iso recognition.
All you need is 2 AA batteries and any type of 35mm film to get going
What’s in the Box?
I bought the camera from eBay and received just the camera no manual, etc. It was well packaged. I added a couple of batteries – AA. I always have some of these in the house so I guess I prefer these rather than a more specialised battery.
It was great to hear the whirl of the motor when I closed the battery door. Overall the camera is in great conditions with no scuffs, dents or marks.
Is it in Good Condition?
It is in great condition and although there is no box or manual it looks like it has been hardly used. It is light, looks robust and would be easy to carry. I guess that it would be a good camera to use on a Photo Walk. However, I am not sure that I will keep it as I already have a similar camera the Olympus LT Zoom 105. The question is should I run a film through it to see if I may change my mind?
