A few weeks back my friend and I were discussing photography, and since he knows that I'm an analog geek on all fronts, he mentioned that his grandma had left him a pair of old analog cameras. I got excited right away and wondered if I could see them, but my friend was already one step ahead.
Yashica 35-ME was manufactured in 1973 by Yashica Co Ltd in Tokyo, Japan. This camera is a 35mm rangefinder, very solid and compact (24x36mm). Very easy to use, it has a distance indicator on the lower part of the viewfinder and a built in exposure meter which runs on one 1.3 V mercury battery and also appears on the right side of the viewfinder. The lens is a Yashinon f/2.8 38mm, the shutter is programmed set with speed range from 1/30 to 1/650 sec. The camera has an ISO/ASA selector, tripod thread, release cable thread, self timer and a flash hotshoe.
