Yashica FR is a 35mm SLR camera, made by Yashica and introduced in 1976. The FR and its later offshoot, the FR-1, marked the first time that Yashica attempted to compete in the 35mm professional and serious amateur markets.
The FR featured an electronically-operated, horizontal-travel, cloth focal plane shutter with speeds from 1 - 1/1000 sec. It is a manual-focus SLR camera with manually set exposure controls, and aperture and shutter speeds are visible in the viewfinder. Instead of the normal mechanical shutter button, the FR was fitted with a 'Feather-Touch' electronic release. It was fitted with the Contax/Yashica bayonet lens mount, allowing the use of either Yashica or Carl Zeiss T* lenses. The camera was available with a power winder, and could also accept an available Contax/Yashica motor drive and infrared remote shutter release.
