Zenzaburo Yoshino

Discussion in 'Medium Format' started by red_orchid|1, Feb 13, 2007.

  1. Hello,
    Does anyone know where I can find info and photos of Zenzaburo Yoshino,
    Bronica,s father.
     
  2. I have some links buried in my old box's bookmarks but wonder whether they're dead--especially since you've turned nothing up. Not sure if Robert Monaghan's medium format site is up and running. I recall Yoshino got his start in postwar Japan making metal cigarette and make-up cases. The stamping and materials skill is evident in the early Bronica D and later S series(Steve Gandy's www.cameraquest.com site has some leads, too). I have an old Bronica S and love it. What everyone thinks is chrome trim on the old dears is actually stainless steel. Very sweet vintage 6x6 SLR with its sharp Nikkor lenses.
     
  3. Hello,
    Thanks for your reply, any links or info would be a great help. I'm a real fan of early Bronica and I'm gathering info for a web site I'm working on which will be dedicated to the Bronica S series. If anyone out there has any brochures, old equipment or anything related to early bronica which they would like to donate I would very much appreciate it.
