Yashica Electro 35CC mini review – by Andrew Morang

It is hard to resist interesting old cameras, especially if they are low cost. Before a 2017 trip to Nepal, I had been looking for a compact 35mm fixed lens camera. I knew I would carry my day supplies myself, so my Leica M2 kit with lenses was a bit heavier than I wanted to puff up and down trails, especially at 3000+ m altitude. My old Leica IIIC was out for repair and might not be ready in time. Thanks to the advice on Cameraquest, I bought a Yashica Electro 35CC from an eBay seller. After testing it with Kodak BW400CN on a car trip to Santa Fe, I was really pleased!
