13 Sep Cult Camera: Yashica T4


This camera became famous, famous enough to be considered a cult camera, because it was used by the also famous celebrity/fashion/etc photographer Terrence ‘Terry’ Richardson.

Richardson has been running the photography game for a while now. Over the years, he’s photographed nearly every model, actress, and musician for just about every publication and brand.

But back to the camera: Yashica T4 it’s plastic, not very pretty, and was discontinued in 2002. It doesn’t have a integrated zoom lens, an LCD screen on the back, nor does it come with built in Wi-fi. It uses one non-rechargeable camera battery, shoots 35mm film, and it’s, for all intents and purposes, obsolete.  Oh yeah!
