Yashica Y35 - a scam

What a joke. Basically a toy. Can't believe it made over 1.6 mln on the crowd funding platforms.. I remember the discussion on this forum lol

Yes, it's hard to believe anyone would fund this junk. Then again, people fall for herbal remedies all the time....

For the asking price the punter could have bought a used DSLR with kit lens.

I like backing some interesting photography projects on Kickstarter. I thought this one was a joke when it was announced. It was a hard NO for me.

It seems to me that the punters were expecting some of the Yashica magic of years gone by. What they got was little more than a webcam in a fancy looking case with some bits of metal thrown in to make up the weight.

Actually a dash cam if the comments on YouTube were correct. I only use kickstarter to support artists I watch when they are getting the money together for print editions of their work. (Mostly web comics like Schlock Mercenary. 13+ years of daily updates without missing one!)
