Camera Description

This camera was a major technology leap forward in 35mm photography in 1966. The Electro-35 was the first electronically controlled camera and first to offer a fully automatic mode. Light levels are measured using a cadmium sulfide photoresistor powered by a mercury battery. The company marketed these advancements using the space-age atomic symbol on the face of the camera. This was during the height of midcentury cool, long before the Three Mile Island nuclear plant disaster. The Yashica Electro 35 was introduced in 1966 and proved popular throughout the 1970s.
