Canon Ql17 vs Yashica Electro 35 GX Part 1

Finally the answer everyone has been waiting  35 years to have. Which is better the Canon Ql17 GIII or the Yashica Electro 35 GX?  Really no one, just me?

So you can see that they are very similarly specified with the greatest difference being that the Canon is Shutter priority and the Yashica is aperture priority.  The next phase of testing will be to run some film through each of them.  As I can’t determine precisely the shutter speed or aperature for each of them I may not record any info but just take matching pictures.

    When you become an internet celebrity (for doing what no one else does) I hope you remember your friends who have been faithfully following your camera travails (one or two years late) 🙂

    Seriously though, I find this stuff fascinating and I can’t be the only one.

    Thanks, I’m having fun and I don’t need much of an excuse for that. I do appreciate the feedback I know people visit here for many different reasons (mostly obscure camera references to be honest) but it’s knowing that someone is also enjoying it that keeps me going.

    these are beautiful cameras, which one feels better? which lens focuses more smoothly, etc?
    how are the viewfinders, large? nice.

    I’ll try to discribe the differences in feel and use in my next post, thanks for the input.
