Yashica Electro 35 GT

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

A sturdy and well conceived leaf shuttered rangefinder with a very quick f1.7 lens. The "G" presumedly stand for Gold Mechanica which mention to the gold plated electric contact points. The GT and GTN was very dark but Yashica also made satin chrome versions, the GS and GSN. The GT and GTN were equal too each other with the distinction that the GTN had a hot footwear.
 Conspicuously a quality camera with a very pointed 45mm Color Yashinon lens it likely won't be my first alternative in this class, the Yashica is considerably larger than my Canonet QL17 III(or the Minolta Hi-Matics), in detail the body is the identical size as a little SLR like a Pentax Spotmatic or k1000. While I personally favour aperture priority to shutter speed main concern, the Yashica Electro 35 GT is aperture priority ONLY, whereas the Canonet QL17 III is shutter speed priority AND manual. It furthermore sports no less than three annoying colored lights on the peak plate(Red and amber exposure signs and a green electric electric battery check light).

whereas they were manufactured in both Japan and Hong Kong, this one was made in Japan. The accessory wide/tele lens kit and auxiliary viewfinder boasted in the base photograph was made in Hong Kong. It's an iconic and solid rangefinder, with an above average 45mm/f1.7 lens that can be selected up for reasonable(but not bargain) charges on online auctions by anyone involved in film taking photos.
