My Blog__ Yashica Electro

February 10, 2011 | By

I got a new camera, and it was only 20$! Very excited about this because i have always wanted to get one... so thanks ebay for helping me out. A lil info on this baby : the electro 35 was one of the most popular camera's of the 60's and 70's, apparently Yashica sold 8 MILLION in 15 years!!
This camera is a brick. It is big and solid metal. It has a big, clear viewfinder and rangefinder, which is much clearer than a lot of other rangefinders of it's time.

The electro is an easy camera to use, it is an automatic, but it is an aperture-priority camera. Pick your aperture, and the Yashica Electro 35 selects the shutter speed, from 1/500 up to thirty seconds or more.

The only issue with this camera is that the batteries are not made anymore, so i bought a battery adapter on ebay and now it works great!

I am getting my first roll of film developed this weekend hopefully, so next week I will show you how it turned out.
