Yamato Pax 35


  1. Hi!

    Sorry, I just wanted to know, what kind of film does this model need?

    Also, how does it work?
    I just got one recently, you see, and it has so many leverages and knobs!!

    thanks so much!

  2. Std 35mm film.
    You wind on the film,set the shutter speed on the outer ring here 150 - 100 - 50 - 25 - B
    set the diaphragm with the ring inside this and then use the lever down on the left side to the lens barrel to set the range, via the rangefinder. There are two windows on the bak, viewfinder (largest pikture) and rangefinder window.

    THis is a very simple kamera to use, if you find it hard to use I kan take the burden off of you! :-)
