    Looks like the early Yashicaflex S pictured here:

    What shutter speed range does it have? Are there filter threads or a bayonet connection for filters on the lens?

    Hi Matt:
    Shutter speeds range from B, 1/10th, and all the way up to 1/200th. There is no shutter release cable slot near the shutter.

    There is no kind of threading on the lenses.

    Then it definitely sounds like that pictured Yashicaflex S

    The only problem is that the shutter release is beneath the shutter, on the front

    Looks like the AII:

    Though the waist level finder lid on yours is a bit different. Is it removable?

    Yes, it seems to be the AII, except with the Yashica emblem on the top.

    Maybe a replacement part, who knows...

    Now, what is the best way to clean one of these? The ground glass is filthy.
    Will 80cc cleaner and lens tissue do?

    Hpulley: I'm new to TLRs, so I have no idea how to remove it. It very well may be.

    Looking at the prices for the AII, I saved over $50, but I only found one other for sale. Cool.
    Update: Yes, it seems to have been replaced, as the screws holding the top area in place are all the same - smaller versions of the body type screws - Except for one at the top, that also looks much more recent.

    The little round window above the focus knob should be the frame counter.

    It is indeed. Any idea on how it resets?

    It currently reads "1".

    i think it resets when you insert a film.
    do you have pictures of the bottom?

    the round indentation in the front: is there a screwthread visible there?
    it might be where the cablerelease is fitted.

    The counter will automatically reset when the back is opened. Insert a fresh roll of film in the lower spool position, move the empty spool to the upper position. Insert the tab on the film backing into the slot in the upper spool and wind the film until the start arrows on the backing paper align with the start arrow on the camera then close the back. Wind the film until the number 1 shows in the window above the focus knob on the right side, it should stop on its own. After each shot, push the button and advance the film, it will automatically stop at the next frame. I dont know if that model automatically cocks the shutter or if you must manually cock the shutter on the side of the lens like the C and D models.
