Re: Looking for help: which Yashica Electro 35 is this?


thank you again for taking the time to look into this!

I took some pictures of the light sensor window on my camera.

1000 ASA:

800 ASA

640 ASA

500 ASA

To me it seems that while moving from 800 to 1000 ASA the blades open up the window to its maximum area halfway between 800 and 1000 and, by the time I reach 1000, they go past the max area position and close down a little. This might explain why the exposure times at the two positions are essentially the same.

Maybe there is a way to register their position. I'll look into this...
