I'm selling my Yashica Electro 35, I picked it up a couple of years ago on a flea market somewhere.

The camera is in pretty good condition on the outside but it has a couple of flaws on the inside:

- The shutter often refuses to fire, pressing the shutter button down very firmly and/or shaking the camera gets it working again
and when it works, the meter seems to be working fine. I suspect that the mechanical linkage between the button and the shutter in the lens has developed too much play soemwhere along the way.

- The frame lines in the bottom left corner of the viewfinder are missing, there's probably a piece rattling around in the rangefinder mechanism that could be recovered.

Apart from those two issues, there's nothing wrong with the camera.
I lack the skills & equipment to fix it up myself, this is probably the best place to find someone who'd like to give it a try.
It's a fun little camera, exspecially for street photography but since the shutter makes no more noise than a quiet little click,
an unreliable shutter button kills all the fun...

More info on the camera:
