The Yashica Electro GT and her sister model, the silver Electro 35 GS are electro-mechanic rangefinder cameras produced by Yashica between 1970 and 1973. They are the third models of the Electro 35 family, “the world’s first commercially successful electronically controlled 35mm camera”, produced from 1965. They can use a wider range of film then their predecessors (25 – 1000 ISO) and have gold-plated electric contacts, which makes them less vulnerable for electric problems caused by corrosion. The camera has not only an electric light meter, but also an electric shutter, so you really need a battery to properly shoot with it. Without, the shutter speed is et to 1/500s. To avoid accidental photos, the shutter release can be locked. As you might have to change the film speed to compensate back light, it also has a little pouch on back to store the data sheet of your film.
