The Yashica T4 Super, (also known as T4 Super D, T5, and Kyocera T Proof), was the last model in the T series of 35 mm compact cameras manufactured by Kyocera Corporation for Yashica. Like the Contax RTS series of 35mm SLR cameras, Yashica's T series was a product of the partnership between Kyocera and Carl Zeiss AG. Thus, the T4 Super and all the models before it were equipped with impressive Carl Zeiss lenses.
Aside from its Carl Zeiss Tessar 35 mm f/3.5 lens, the auto-exposure, and auto-focus T4 Super also had a waist-level viewfinder called "super scope" beside the LCD display on its top plate.
