Yashica FR II (1977-1981)

Yashica FR II
Esta fotografia é do exemplar que possuo.


The Yashica FR-II was an electronically-controlled 35mm film SLR cameramade by Yashica and produced between 1977-81.
Based on earlier FR I, the FR II dropped the manual exposure controls of that camera, with shutter speeds set automatically by the camera's metering system (except for Bulb and Flash settings). Equipped with the C/Y common bayonet mount, the FR-II could accept a variety of Yashica / Contax lenses and was targeted at the beginning photographer who did not want or need manual control of shutter speeds.
