I would like to know a little more about this camera. It's almost new, and it comes with 2 auxiliary Yashikor telephoto & wide alngle attachments.
Does it expose correctly Tri-X and 64T in sunlight?
I'm planning on shooting snowboard scenes,
thanx, W.

An auto only camera is not a good choice for snowboarding as it will underexpose all the footage. Fortunately for you I believe this particularly Yashica has up to +2 compensation for auto, so you'll get by. Make sure you go to +2 when shooting snow scenes.
