Yashica Mat 124G and Pentax K1000

Hey guys, just got two new cameras!

The first is a Pentax K1000 which will be a fun SLR to play with.  Trying out a roll already and it feels pretty good so far.

The real find though is a Yashica Mat 124G! I love TRLs and I only have a Yashica A and a Blackbird Fly (doesn’t really count does it?). So since, it just past my birthday I decided to treat myself. Unfortunately the light meter seems to have some problems when changing aperatures. It’s fine but I really didnt want the hassle of carrying a hand light meter (an unreliable one at that) anymore.

OK gonna shoot some film with these and post some photos latr!

Yashica Electro 35 GS – Need Help!

Ok so I go this Yashica Electro 35 GS because I love 35mm rangefinders. I got it pretty cheap but I can’t seem to get the meter to work. Apparently they don’t make the batteries needed for this camera anymore. If anyone has any suggestions or advice please let me know!

Also I’ve tried using a PX28A 6v battery with a spring, but it doesn’t seem to work either.
