Yashica Electro 35 GSN


The Yashica Electro 35 GSN is a coupled-rangefinder, leaf-shuttered 35mm camera with aperture-priority automatic exposure camera.

The built of this camera is very solid and heavy, which is very nice. The aperture can be set from f/1.7 to f/16 and the camera will choose the shutter speed from 1/500 sec to 30 seconds automatically with Auto mode. There is 2 lights to show you whether the apperture you set will get a perfect exposure shot. It has the B mode too, you can lock the shutter release after you press it down… something like a cable release lock for long exposure shot. The f1.7 gave a very nice depth and great for shooting under low light condition. With the viewfinder gridlines aid, you can get the perfect focus like you saw in the viewfinder. The Electro has the hotshoe for you to attach the Lomography Colorsplash Flash for some colorsplashing fun!
