Give us a sample picture from your Yashica

I don't know about a worldwide day and time for a Yashica click-fest. But how about some examples of what your Yashica can do?

Here's one I just scanned. The Arno river in Florence, on a cloudy, snowy day In Italy, 2/22/05.

One advantage to Florence this time of year.....the Arno has some water.

here's one from my GS, which I've had for about a month now. It was this series and a roll of color I shot that made me really like these cameras. The over/slow indicators on my camera require that I "pump" the release to wake them up, they're a little flaky (a cleaning maybe?). I'm not a big fan of not being able to have more exposuure control and not knowing the shutter speed, but I love the fast lens and the look.

jon,
I see in your signature that you have both the Yashica GSN and the Canon G III QL17, and I see you using the Yashica in your avatar. I just picked up a QL17 today. Which do you prefer?

The Yashica overall, although I obtained good results with the QL17. I I like the larger size, and the available light abilities of the GSN.

This Yashica forum got me thinking, I have not used any of mine in a while , so I got my 35CC out, disassembled it to clean some haze out of the RF window and shot a couple rolls with it today. I almost forgot what great cameras these are! I made a galleryfor my 35CC images, here are some samples: http://www.rangefinderforum.com/phot...ry.php/cat/820

Good forum,
Todd

Nice images, Todd. Great light. I need to find some repair/maintenance information for Yashicas, so that I can take care of some of the little issues I have with mine.

It's a pity I don't have my own scanner. Today I developed the first pictures I took with my Lynx 14E and it appeared to work perfectly. The pictures show great contrast and sharpness.

Here´s 2 shots from my GTN, both hand held and both wide open if I recall correctly... I love the lens these cameras have.

I dug my GSN out of my local camera store's junk box. I paid $2.00 for it and $1.00 for a 55mm hood. A little vinegar in the battery compartment, a new 6volt battery and a small wad of Aluminum foil and it was good to go.

Heres one of my favorites from my newly-aquired GSN. Taken with some Kodak BW 400 film and scanned at Longs.

http://www.rangefinderforum.com/phot...cat/500/page/1

And another one from my Dad's Lynx 14. It's blurry (because I didnt focus right) but I still think it looks great.

OK, here's one from my newly repaired Professional:

http://www.rangefinderforum.com/phot...cat/500/page/1

The star burst is light reflecting off the polished marble obelisk - I was interested to see if I could capture this without suffering from too much flare. I think the result is quite encouraging. The film is an off-brand 400asa special, but may actually be 3M.

Overall, I'm very happy with this camera - particularly the low-light performance and accuracy of the meter. I also got a GTN which is the next one for a test roll - if it's as good as the Pro, it will be another keeper!

I seem to have caught the Electro bug - I have a GSN in a state of complete dissassembly and a GT on its way from the US. Now, if I can just snag a CC......

I would say that is excellent handling of flare with an Electro. I have learned to avoid shooting towards the sun, even with a hood.

Very impressive. I'm going to take a break from shooting with one Minolta Hi-Matic 9 and trying to free up the shutter on another, and take out the GS with the GSN lens and new pad of death. We'll see how that does.

I just posted two photos in my gallery with my GSN following the replacement of the light seals from Jon Goodman. Great fellow!!! I am continually surprised by the quality of the lens and the contrast and the color it captures. Great traveling companion!!

Just got the negatives from the first roll of the early Electro G that I repaired with a new pad and a lens from a GSN. I'm pretty satisfied with the results, the meter and shutter seem to be working as they should.

Jon,
I too like to ride bikes for exercise but haven't figured out the right bag for carrying on the bike. What do you carry them in? I thought about a backpack but that is too difficult to get into quickly. Suggestions?

I use a canvas bag which drapes over the carrier on the rear of the bike. My wife got it as a teenager for a bike trip in Europe. I don't know if such things are still made, but it's great for small shopping trips and carrying a camera.

I suppose you could make one up using two small backpacks, one for each side of the bike.

Forgive me if this has already been posted, but check out the Yashica photos at this website. The gentleman uses an Electro 35.

http://www.fsb.hr/~srudan/stranice/start.htm

Click on one of the seven galleries at the bottom of his page, then click "continue"
when the page for that gallery loads. You will then be viewing the photos.

You'll see beautiful examples of what the Yashica Electros are capable of.

Last Sunday inside the atrium at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta. Konica-Minolta Centuria 800 color print film. It seems to be a good fit with the GSN. The more I use them, the more I like both.

Hello everyone,

I am new here, and just found this thread. I have a Yashica Electro 35, my dad's old camera which he passed to me when he got a new digicam, and have only recently discovered again what a great camera it is.

Here's my website with two pages of Electro photos.
http://www.artemisworks.plus.com/electro/index.htm

Looking forward to being part of this great rangefinder "posse".

regards
Jin

I finally got around to posting one of the test-roll shots from my new/old GSN on my website:

http://www.two-muses.com/arch/2005_09.html#000633

I'm really loving this camera (the sharpness and the colours are extraordinary), but am definitely still in learning mode: I'll give myself a major pat on the back when I get through 36 exposures without a single "underexposed" (lens cap on, stom-stom-stom) image!

Thank you! The film? I had to think about this, as I have a vegetable drawer full of almost-expired and just-expired film that I bought via a Dutch market site, and I just grabbed one for the test-roll, but I'm quite sure it was Fuji NPS 160. I'll have to start noting this info - I miss the little square to hold the boxtop that my Nikon FE has...

Lynn just use a piece of masking tape. It is translucent and re stickable (is there such a word?) I just peel off the old box top and tape the new one to the back of the Yashica. Not the best but it works.
