Yashica TL-Electro


Good size and brightness.

Exposure meter (Two LEDs up or down)

Build quality:

Very solid and well built.
It also have a nice feel to it.


Uses M42 screw mount.
You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.


Really nice camera with good viewfinder, build quality and light meter.
The light meter work very well but I would like to have a middle LED.
It works but just showing either a led for over or under exposed and you have the right exposure just when it switches.
But thats something one can easly get used to so its not a problem.

Thumbs up:
Light meter is very good and responsive
All mechanical shutter
Build quality
Good view finder

Thumbs down:

No mirror lock
