Yashica is back from the dead once again, with the release of a new 35mm film camera: the Yashica MF-1 Snapshot Art Camera. It is joined by a trio of new 35mm ISO 400 film stocks, one color, one black and white, and one called "Golden 80s". 

Unlike its previous release – the ill-fated and abominable Yashica Y35 "digiFilm" camera, which was a sad electronic mockery of an analogue camera – the Yashica MF-1 is a true 35mm film camera. Likewise, the new films are real 35mm rolls, not the ludicrous popinjays that were the digiFilm modules for the Y35.
