Yashica Flash-O-Set II

Traduction de Manuel M

Here is a strange camera, big, heavy, impressive.

Its lens (treated, which seems to be with three lenses) is with fixed focal distance. Its diaphragm (with two blades in shape of V) offers apertures from 4 to 22. The speed is managed by an immense cell located around the lens, and whose one reads the measure to the collimated viewfinder.
In automatic position, it is the couple speed/aperture which is dealt with. The camera is equipped with a socket X for electronic flash, but it is also equipped with small reflectors and a casing being able to receive magnesic bulbs XM1.
Caution! The button located on the top of the body is not the shutter release: it is the ordering of the ejection of the magnesic bulb! The shutter release, it, is in fronting, below and on the left of the lens.
More than one photographer has to let itself surprise!

The position of cell around the lens makes it possible to distinguish this camera from the first Fash-O-Set, on which, the cell is located close to the viewfinder.
