Yashica Electro 35 G 35mm Film Rangefinder Camera with Original Half Case and Lens Cap
Here we have a Yashica Electro 35 G rangefinder camera. This camera comes with the lower portion of its original case and lens cap. It is being sold at a discount due to a misconfigured winding level that must be returned to the starting position manually.
It has a clean film and battery compartment, clear and clean glass, shutter and aperture blades are perfectly clean and oil-free, focus ring spins smoothly, all levers and buttons function perfectly. The rangefinder and viewfinder are both crystal clear, with a nicely contrasting focus patch. Focus throw is smooth and weighted and feels wonderful.
The metering system works perfectly.
This camera comes with a color-corrected Yashinon-DX lens at 45mm focal length and ƒ/1.7 aperture. This is a perfect focal length for general photography, snap shots, and street photography. The fast aperture is wonderful for low-light and nighttime shooting.
The G is one of the best versions of the Yashica Electro 35 rangefinder camera. Next to the GSN (which features a hot shoe as opposed to the G's cold accessory shoe), the GS is the most full-featured Electro produced. Yashica even went so far as to electroplate all the internal circuits with gold to prevent oxidation and deterioration.
Cosmetically a very nice example.
I'm not sure if this is a feature, but what the heck... This is the camera that Andrew Garfield used in The Amazing Spider-man (2012) as Peter Parker. Be like your friendly neighborhood Spider-man and shoot a Yashica? Why not?
It will be packaged securely and shipped immediately.
