    Yashica Half 17

    I have had this camera for a while now, it's in pristine condition, but I think the meter has died on it. Any chance to get it working again, or is it just a shelf queen now? I think it's such a neat little camera, I'd love to use it more! Any advice would be great!

    it would cost vastly more than the camera is worth to replace the cell, assuming you could find someone willing to try (Zack's?) -- several of those have a manual mode, though. They are cute, I've got a couple.

    If I understand correctly, that camera has a flash mode in which the shutter speed is fixed at 1/30 and you can manually control the aperture. I've used my Olympus Pen EE-S that way.
