The Yashica 230 AF is an autofocus 35mm SLR introduced 1987 by Kyocera in Japan.

It was promoted as having three autofocus modes: single-shot, continuous (follow-focus) and trap-focus (shutter fires when subject enters focus). The camera provides motorized film advance (up to 1.8 frames/sec in continuous mode) and rewind; and recognizes film DX coding from ISO 25–5000. LCDs on the top panel and underneath the viewfinder image display shooting parameters. Exposure modes include programmed autoexposure (keyed to lens focal length, with program shift), aperture- or shutter-priority, or manual settings (PASM). Spot metering with AE lock is offered.

While no built-in electronic flash is included, Kyocera offered a matching CS-110AF flash unit which hugs the top of the pentaprism and is powered by the camera's 6-volt lithium 2CR5 battery.
