Yashica Samurai X3.0

Yashica Samurai X3.0


The Yashica Samurai X3.0


Is unusual Samurai series was begun by Kyocera in 1987 with the X3.0. The Samurai completely discarded prior ideas about still-camera design, and instead creating a body more resembling the compact video cameras which were becoming popular at the time. The Samurai is a true SLR, exposing half-fame (17×24 mm) images—a format which had always been more accepted within the Japanese market (for example in the Olympus Pen series). The Samurai X3.0 can be found with both Yashica and Kyocera branding, and with accents in either red or teal blue colors. It may be seen as one of the originators of the "bridge camera" concept, alongside full-frame models such as Olympus's Infinity Zoom 300.

The X3.0 includes an integral, autofocus 25–75 mm zoom lens—a 3x zoom range (the later Samurai X4.0 zoomed in to 100 mm, a 4x range). Besides autofocus, the camera has motorized film advance and rewind, and power zooming using WIDE/TELE pushbuttons. A small "RS" (reset) button is also provided, in the event the camera's microprocessor locks up.
