I was given two Yashica "GA" Electro cameras. One was trash being totally wrecked by a previous owner but the other was in pristine condition. It was this camera I adapted to use a common 3-volt lithium battery by inserting a brass washer and spring from the local hardware (total price $0.80). Tests comfirmed the operation and I may put the whole shebang up for sale if the market is there. I cannot use it as there is no way to independently set shutter speeds. Otherwise it is a great picture maker with wide-angle and tele lens adaptors, finder, and nice case.
