The 44A was a cheaper version of the Yashica 44 which was developed for the mass market during the popularity of the Rolleiflex Baby Grey. It was made in several different colours – this is one of the more scarce Blue versions. I also have one in Rose.

It is certainly an easy camera to use. See my photos made with the 44A Blue.
