Yashica Electro 35 GS

Meet Yashica Electro 35 GS....the camera which start the Junk Camera saga....

Yashica Electro 35 GS (1970-1973) 35mm rangefinder with Color-Yashinon DX 45mm f1.7 lens. Camera and lens made in Japan. Aperture priority automatic exposure with stepless shutter speeds from 1/500 to 30 seconds. Flash mount with no hot shoe. Originally used a 5.6 volt PX 32 mercury battery. I used a combination of 1 (one) 3 volt CR123A battery and 2 (two) 1.5 volt LR44 battery. There is a yellow arrow shaped light indicator for under exposure and a red arrow shaped light indicator for over exposure. Apart from the dead red arrow shaped light indicator, everything else works well. I have use it with films. Purchased it for about US$5.
