Introduced in the market in 1985, the MF-3 was the first Yashica camera produced exclusively in Brazil where 1.2 million units were manufactured.
It has versions in the colors black, yellow and red.
It has manual exposure in its non-flash mode. Users select an aperture with the "weather symbol ring" on the lens barrel. The CdS meter cell above the lens inside the filter thread will trigger a warning light in a low light situation indicating the flash should be used.
Two AA batteries power the meter and the flash.
