A Yashica 35W! Fine, yet basic 35mm rangefinder with a great lens.

It is a bit poorly. Shutter fires at all speeds, BUT there is a delay, and sometimes you have to press the release a couple of times. I think it is some dried grease.

Here is what the user manual says about this camera: "A precision instrument capable of bringing you the some of the finest photographs you have ever taken".  :P

For those who want to get a first rangefinder, this one's for you.
Unlike the Electro 35, this one's entirely mechanical. While the range of available shutter speeds is slightly limited, a simple ND filter is all that's needed to use it in the brightest sunlight. It has a very reliable Copal shutter (you can't kill them), so you can expect it to last quite a while. It's similar to the Yashica J in many ways, but it's more rare as not many have been made under this name.

Hey

I would be up for the 110 film if it's still available.

So I have to offer something in return? I have lots of crappy old cameras. Not sure what else, although I can have a think.

Oh yeah, the 110 is still up there. I'll ring SLVR and ask him to come up here :)

And yes, it's your turn to offer something :)

Im pretty embarrassed about my equipment but here goes.

1. Intstax camera. Works but the battery contacts are gritty. Each time I went to use it I think I generally had to replace the batteries.
2. Canon EOS 300. I have never used this. Was given to my by a friend. Untested, the contacts look clean but I suspect the current batteries are flat
3. Pentax Zoom lens .70 - 220mm. I have never used this
4. Hanimex Tele-Lens. I have never used this.

I have more photos, but 5 was the max.

If more than one person is interested in more than one item I am happy to send out to multiple recipients.

Hello all

Sorry for the lack of detail.

I have these additional images, I hope these can you tell you what you want know, if not just list the questions here, and I will try and check when I am back at the studio again (not sure when that will be though).

It looks like the Pentax lens is from f4 - f32
I can't quite read the Hanimex from the image but it's at least f5.6 - f32, it might have a higher aperture than f5.6.

Slow down there MaxR88!
In the share the love, you must take in order to get a chance to give :)
It's very in the spirit of the season.

Now Lharby, what bayonet is that Hanimex?
