The camera uses a 35mm film format and has a focal length of 45mm. The Electro 35 is known for its high-quality lens and reliable performance. It offers a wide range of shutter speeds from 1/500 to 30 seconds, allowing for versatile shooting in various lighting conditions. The camera also has a hot shoe for attaching an external flash and a self-timer for capturing self-portraits or group photos. With its classic design and advanced features, the Yashica Electro 35 remains a popular choice among film photography enthusiasts.

Even more info for you

The Yashica Electro 35 uses a stepless aperture, which means it can adjust the aperture continuously rather than in discrete steps. This allows for precise exposure control. The camera has a battery-powered light meter that requires a mercury battery, which may be difficult to find due to environmental regulations. However, there are alternative battery options available. The Yashica Electro 35 is a fully manual camera, meaning the photographer needs to focus and set the aperture manually. It does not have a built-in motor drive, so film advance needs to be done manually as well.
