Yashica GT with expired Kodak Gold 200


Photography distilled down to its most basic form while still maintaining control over the image. Aperture priority and manual rangefinder focusing with a fast normal lens.  That’s what a fixed lens rangefinder camera like this Yashica Electro 35 GT is and that’s all it needs to be.  I prefer this all black version to other two toned variants.  Despite the ubiquity of all black digital cameras now back in the early 1970’s most cameras were silver rather than black and older black cameras really stand out for this difference.  As seen in my previous post Yashica Electro 35 GT this is what focusing with the cameras triangular focus patch looks like. (Notice how the frame lines also move to provide parallax correction)
