History of the brand Yashica New window

Traduction de Manuel M

It integrates a selenium cell which does not require a battery, and which surrounds the lens.
It works automatically or in priority with aperture; the shutter goes from the 1/30 to the 1/600, and include a pose B.
The viewfinder is collimated, and it indicates the couple speed/diaphragm which is selected.
The lens is a 37 mm opening with f 2,7 and whose optical  formula would be inspired by the Tessar.
The ring of focusing, which extends from 1 m ad infinitum, include 2 intermediate notches with 1.5 and 3 m.

The cocking lever is in the sole of the camera, and not in the higher hood, which is rather frequent on the cameras of this period.
The accessory shoe does not include a synchro flash, this one is done by a lateral socket.
Rare thing on this range of camera, one notes the presence of a self-timer of 10 s.
