(SOLD) The Yashica ME 1 is a small, compact 35mm viewfinder camera with auto-exposure, made in Japan originally in 1970. This example is in black.
The focus zone settings are visible in the viewfinder through a small square window, below the finder window. Behind the focus ring is an aperture ring - with an "A" setting for automatic and stops from f2.8-16 for flash. Film advance is by a thumb-wheel on the lower left of the back.
The film speed is set using a ring around the lens, with a display just below. The CdS photocell is just above the lens, inside the filter thread - allowing the auto-exposure to compensate for filters.
The view finder has bright lines for the picture area and parallax correction marks. On the right in the viewfinder, you can see an needle marked exposure meter with no setting marked. The shutter in automatic mode should lock if too low
The top plate carries the shutter release, hot shoe and frame counter. There is a lever for the self-timer on the front. There is a Tripod screw point but no cable release point.
This camera has been mechanically tested and is in full working condition - $100
