Here are three features that make the 35MF my favorite. Its 38mm f/2.8, 4-element lens. Second, as simple as the CdS exposure system is, it seems to work well. I haven’t shot slide film with this camera yet, but so far all the negatives have come out well exposed. Third, I really like how the 35MF feels in the hand. Some of that results from its 490-gram (16-ounce) heft, which partly comes from the pair of AA batteries used to power its internal flash.

The 35 MF is a viewfinder camera made by Yashica in 1976.
It has an unnamed, coated 38 mm f/2.8 lens, with scale focusing by zone symbols. The camera has programmed automatic exposure between 1/60 second at f/2.8 and 1/250 second at f/16, with a CdS meter cell mounted inside the filter ring. A needle meter is displayed in the bright line viewfinder, showing what aperture will be used. Unlike later similar cameras, the shutter does not lock in low light.
The camera has a built-in pop-up flash, the first Yashica camera with this feature. There is a self-timer on the front of the camera, to the right of the lens. The camera requires a 1.3V mercury cell to power the meter, and two AA batteries for the flash.
