    I don't think this type automatically resets the counter. Others do when you close and lock the back. My Yashica TLR is like this, where it has the little, round switch between the advance knob and focus knob. I seem to think that you push the film advance button, then push the little switch upwards and it resets the camera to S, which stands for Start. It's something like that. If nobody chimes in, I'll check mine when I return home from work.

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.
    Hmmm... That could be, but I'm sure he's had the back open at least once (one of the photos seems to show this) and it still shows 1 (of course, perhaps he didn't relock it?) If that is the case, then look at my vague instructions

    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.

    Hi maarten,

    Yes, there is an indentation: I will try it with the shutter release cable I have now.

    I do not have a picture of the bottom - that is where you open the camera to insert the film.

    Ralnphot: Shutter is cocked manually.

    Mike: I will see f opening the back resets the shutter. I have a feeling that it does not. What "little switch" ? I will go and grab the camera now.

    Maarten: No, that was not fr a shutter release cable - at least not a standard one.

    Mike: Opening the back does NOT reset the frame counter. In fact, even after firing the shutter and pressing the button and winding the knob - it did not move from "1".

    Hey, it got the job done! No worries, and thank you!

    Any advice for shooting 6x6?
    and more importantly, how to clean the ground glass!

    The camera is a Yashicaflex-AII (the plain "A" had a red window). Film winding on these is as described by jp498 for the Yashica-C (and also Yashica-D and 635), EXCEPT that the first versions with film counter and auto-stop winding had a film counter reset button (later automatic) behind the focus knob (slide backward to reset). The aperture and shutter controls etc are similar to the Yashica-A. This site has lots of Yashica manuals http://www.butkus.org/chinon/index.html but unfortunately none exactly like yours. However, from the earliest to the latest, they are basically very similar with the main differences being shutters and lenses, crank wind or knob, Bay 1 filter mounts on premium models and plain on the first (up to 1954) and subsequent budget models and meters (first in 1954) or none. I have some historical stuff at http://www.tlr-cameras.com/Japanese/...x6_History.htm which hangs off the more well known Barry Toogood's www.tlr-cameras.com. The Yashicaflex stuff is a bit thin and hints at some issues with identifying some models but I am waiting on Barry to load an updated page which covers the Yashicaflexes in much more detail and accuracy. By the way, there are at least 9 Yashicaflex models.
