Yashica GT find at a thrift store today!

It is priced around $80 – $100 on Ebay. Purchased it for $29.99 at a local thrift store. I just loaded it with an expired Kodak  200 speed film, and will surely shoot with it this week!

I have put in a working battery, borrowed from a similar model (my Yashica GSN), and it showed signs of life. Everything seems to be in good working order.  I think.

Yashica Electro GT

I will update this post with pictures taken with this camera. Crossing my fingers. Hopefully this one works.

UPDATE: It works!

Below are images produced by this camera. These were taken the first of January.

Sharpness was good at 1.7 but it is tack sharp at f4 and smaller. Beware of flare! It produces pentagonal shaped flares if you are not careful. I find that the metering was spot on most of the time, with a tendency to favor underexposing in dimly lit scenes.
