View Full Version : Yashica T4/T4 super difference
I found an old Yashica T4 (not super) w/ carl zeiss T 3.5/35 lens while cleaning up old boxes. Battery still works and it is in great shape(still in nice felt pouch). I just cannot find any online manuals for it, only T4 super/T4 super D. I don't know what the difference is beside what seems to be the weatherproof and super scope from the pictures on the net. I would really like to know what the iso range is and options on this point & shoot camera so I can try it out. Any help would be greatly welcomed.
I think the weatherproof and top viewfinder are the only differences.
Let me see if I can locate my t4's manual. the options are pretty standard.
there are a bunch of flash options. there is the self timer.
personally I have shot iso50 velvia and iso800 kodak film in this camera.
superscope! it rocks... that's about it.
Thank you both farce and emraphoto. More than anything I needed to know if iso 400 and higher was available, and from the replies it seems fine. I have some delta 3200 and neopan 1600 that I wanted to try with. I cannot believe how the battery (3v lithium cr123) still functions after all these years. Thanks again
I have kust bought a T4 and would be grateful to know if it would be possible to get a copy of the manual? Thanks for any help
Try this one for the manual.
Iso 50 -3200 with DX code
nice Camera when working. two of the three t4's I owned developed a nasty "half roll shot - rewind syndrome", where they rolled the film back at around frame 17 or so. never found out what it was.
my ex-irlfriend uses them now, with sucess -- she doesnt care. have fun with the camera, sharp little Tessar...
I had the half roll rewind problem and got it serviced by Kyocera and it hasn't happened since (this was in the mid 90s).
The camera is a gem. Bought my t4 super new in the mid-90s for a trip to South America and came back with insane Velvia slides. Still amazes me whenever I use it. The colors are gorgeous and despite being f 3.5 the shaprness of the in focus areas and the beautiful out of focus areas that this little Tessar produces are incredible. It's my go to camera when shooting color.
