The User's Review: Yashica Samurai X4.0 35 mm Half Frame AF Camera, Released in 1988

Stickers coming with Samurai for film processing 

X4.0 with the dedicated lens converters & flash diffuser 51.40

X4.0 indicates the zoom range from 25 - 100mm (4X),
bigger than the zoom on X3.0. 

So far, I see only one black version of X4.0,
unlike X3.0 in several color versions.

A white ring around the lens

Viewfinder without eyecup

The viewfinder eyecup

The viewfinder block

More drive and exposure modes
on X4.0 than on X3.0

Vertically-running film

Two kinds of battery covers

Built-in hot shoe on the top. Unlike the elder brother X3.0,
the two flashes will not fire together. 

At the head-up position, the Yashica flash
on the shoe is ready to fire.
