YASHICA ELECTRO M5 MANUAL
What does the M5 stand for?  Well, there’s the Yashica Minister, the Minister II, the Minister III and the Minister D or 700 (or the Minister IV).  So, is the Yashica Electro M5, the Minister 5?  Could be.  And if it is, it’s certainly the simplest of the bunch. Throw in a battery, some film, and set the symbol according to the manual, focus and pull the trigger.  That’s all you need to do.
It’s similar to the Yashica MG- 1 and others with a CdS light meter in the lens area which does away from having to guess any compensation when a filter is used. It requires a 28A/28L battery or the A544 version which makes it easy.  The battery is necessary for  the automatic exposure and the electronic shutter. This one came with a glossy,
black hard case.  It’s very handsome but the top portion is prone to damage because of the way it was made to fit over the bottom half. It’s a good looking camera and fun to use.  It’s the kind of camera one takes on a Sunday stroll.
