    The other camera is even better. I have one. It's a Yashica Lynx 14 e IC. Mine works perfectly. I use it for street photography all the time.

    Yeah the 14e is the shizzle pizzle

    Checked the shutter speeds, 50, 100 and 200 are spot on. 25 is iffy, enough to affect exposure and 10 is no-go. B and T are fine thats all I care about. I never shoot less than 50th anyway, anything less than that is on a tripod.

    about to put in the test roll, should have results this weekend.

    Let us know how it works out. It might need a CLA if I recall correctly the film turning the sprocket wheel is what actually cocks the shutter and mine were very stiff and hard to turn until they had been worked over. It has been several years since I had messed with mine, guess now I'm going to have to run a few rolls through them when I did last use one was before I knew about the manual's sight (or APUG for that matter)
    Real men use Speed Graphics and flashbulbs.

    I have one of those 35 rangefinders with case. It is in mint condition and still works just fine. This thread prompted me to get it out and play around with it.

    Thanks for the memory.

    In case you ever remove the top deck... Leave the WIND knob on deck - the "one-way-wind" mechanism is a difficult re-assembly job that you can avoid, simply by leaving the knob on-deck as you lift the top deck.

    Amazing how many heads got cut off on two rolls I just shot with this...

    Test roll is in, I figured out how to cock the shutter, it needs film loaded in it.

    Halfway through some Gold 200, couple of landscapes, couple of long exposures of Miami skyline at night, the time function is quite useful for this.

    So far I'm in love. That Sunny-16 rule has been getting a lot of use though I've been checking it against my Canon 5D d*****l and I've been guessing the exposure correctly within a half-stop. Never had a fully-mechanical camera with no light meter.

    That black linkage cover is very unusual. Makes it look quite snazzy. It is a real conversation starter, but I find it a bit hard to use. That spiky little focus wheel really chews up the fingers.

    Kodak made or imported some really nice cameras. Interesting unorthodox designs seemed to be there thing. 1 of the nicer cameras I had early on was the Pony 135. Simple, very basic engineering with a very decent lens for its time. By today's standards a bit soft and not as contrasty as newer but, really yielded nice results. The lens retracted so it would fit in a pocket. In my home town the news photgraphers turned in their Speed Graphics and were using them.
