Cameras: Yashica Electro 35

I actually have two of these; an older G (pictured above) and a later GSM (below).  The GSM came with a job lot of cameras I bought and is in fully working condition.  The older one is also in good condition but the exposure control doesn’t appear to be quite working Continue reading “Cameras: Yashica Electro 35”
