Yashica, a Japanese camera manufacturer of 35mm and medium format models, was founded in 1949 as Yashima Seiki. Beginning in 1973, Yashica produced Contax cameras for VEB Zeiss Ikon. Kyocera acquired Yashica in 1983, but faced with strong competition, camera production ceased in 2005. At present, the Yashica brand name is being used by JNC Datum, a Hong Kong company.
