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, blue and red.

The MF-3 is a viewfinder camera for 35mm film. It has a fixed-focus 38mm f3.5lens with a focus range of 1.5m to infinity.

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.
