    I just use silcon adhesive to fix a SVI push on adaptors to my Ds, can take both a filter and lens hood. It will pell right off so no damage to the camera.

    Check the taking lens for dust, fungus etc., by setting shutter to "B" opening the back and looking through the lens. If it is clear, then fine, but some Yashicamats seem prone to "disintegrating lens coating" problems, which will almost certainly result in loss of contrast.

    When you're shopping for hood, remember to pick one that fits the outside bay not the inside (filter) bay. If you buy anything other than the original Yashica metal hood it's worth checking. I bought a plastic one few years back that fits on the inside bay and I couldn't mount filters on so it's either filter or shade and those TLR's are useless without proper shade. I had to pay for an original yashica hood to have both the hood and a filter mounted on.

    This is an excellent point. I started with one of those cheap plastic ones, which are OK without a filter, but then ...

    About two years back I snagged a metal Yashica shade off ePrey for about $16 -- it looked like it had traveled quite a lot, but was mechanically good and I touched up the paint chips a bit.

    I dunno. Seems to work OK for me. Deep freeze is actually a kitchen freezer at about 5F/-15C. I started out with 20 new PX625 mercury cells. Thawed out and put a new one into my 124G in January, 2004. I use that camera lightly. That cell is still good today. (Kept with the camera in a film canister at room temperature until it's actually needed.) At this rate I may only use 3-4 cells out of the 20 before I croak.

    I'm not a chemist (that's PE's department), but I don't believe battery chemistry is "killed" by cold temperatures. Reactions are just slowed way down. At least no problems with these cells so far...
