Product Description

Besides its innovative electronic shutter, the camera is a fairly conventional SLR of the time, with a somewhat cluttered appearance and a physical plan similar to the Pentax Spotmatic, but slightly larger. The shutter speed dial (with Yashica atom logo), film advance, shutter release, rewind knob and battery check are on the top plate. The battery check is a red button and a green light, which will light up quite brightly if the battery is strong. The battery is inserted behind a small and easy-to-lose cap on the back of the camera, and two PC sockets are immediately to the right of it, wrapping onto the side of the camera: one is for FP sync ("Flat Peak" or, just as aptly, "Focal Plane," for long-burning bulbs that could expose at speeds above X-sync) and the other is for X-sync, as is the hot shoe.

The camera is noticeably well-decorated, with a gothic "Y" monogram on the upper part of the pentaprism, "Yashica" in large letters above the lens mount, the camera name in black and red on the front, and a plastic Yashica atom logo on the leatherette. The film door latch is separate from the rewind knob, and is covered by its own panel of faux-leatherette.
