That might sound cliche but the Yashica MF-2 Super really had everything toned down to keep the photographic process as simple as possible. It was a 35 mm point-and-shoot camera that has a pop-up flash and a DX-coding system. The MF-2 Super also had a metering cell that warns the user of underexposure by way of a red LED in the viewfinder. Basically, the MF-2 Super had a lot of similarities with the Yashica MF-2 aside from the DX-coding system and some aesthetic features.

The MF-2 Super was a camera that you didn't have to fiddle around with in hopes of getting a good exposure. Of course, it had a decent 38 mm lens out front that was able to take good photos but if you really wanted great results from this camera, you had to work for it. Minding the focusing distance of more than one meter is vital to taking home clean and sharp images with this point-and-shoot. What the MF-2 Super lacked in amenities, it made up for with its appealing black finish with red details and convenient shooting experience. It was definitely a camera that you could burn through a whole film roll with while having fun.

    Mit sowie kann man Bilder machen, muß es aber nicht.
    Trotzdem sieht man gerade an den mit solchen Kameras gemachten Bildern das die Kamera und auch das Objektiv gar nicht so wichtig ist.
