    Yes Steve, but since formats are reversed in the UK, does it shoot 6x6 or 21/4 x 21/4?

    2 1/4" x 2 1/4" but in the reverse order.

    We don't like metric here.

    Rick, that was a very very nice way of welcoming a newbie. Now that you have given me the idea, I will do it for someone else too

    Thanks for making my day.

    I really appreciate the responses. This may be a really dumb question but developing the film is only one step right? How do you get the actual prints? Any YT videos out there that can show me the process?
    There is a lab in St. Cloud who can develop and print for you. As for light meter, either Sunny 16 (with Tri-X or something similar for film, as they are forgiving with regards to mistakes in exposure) or use a light meter app on smart phone. I shot 25-ish rolls in France last summer with only that for a meter and only had 3-4 frames turn out so poorly they can't be used. It's easier than you think.


    As for the Yashica: make sure the shutter is timing itself correctly before putting a bunch of film through it.

    Lens hood is very useful on that camera, even the cheap Chinese plastic ones you find on eBay. Be aware of what flare looks like in the viewfinder, and assume it will look similar on film.



    Last but not least, have fun! Great camera to start off with.
