My Analog Project 2011 continues in the month of September with the Yashica Electro 35 GT. This 35mm range finder built by Yashica back in 1969 was considered a Pro rangefinder with it's sleek design and super easy semi-automatic exposure system. The camera featured higher ISO options going all the way up to an ISO of 1000 which was very popular with pro photographers. As mentioned, the semi-automatic exposure is easy to use in conjunction with the indicator lights on top of the camera as well as illuminated arrows inside the view finder. But the lack of shutter speed indication anywhere on the camera is a major downside in my opinion, there are times when I prefer to control shutter speed over aperture. This was one of the first rangefinders I bought back in 2010 when I started collecting vintage cameras because I admired it from when I was a teen many years ago.

Most people buy batteries for the Electro's from "The Yashica Guy" which includes an adapter so that the battery fits with no fuss: http://www.yashica-guy.com/
