Yashica GL Rangefinder not Linked
Six months ago i bought a Yashica Electro GL from an op shop for 30 bucks. I got it home to find the focus wasn't linked to the rangefinder, i neglected to check beforehand. I'm not brave enough to open up this particular camera and try and fix it (I'm not particularly patient). It has been on my desk since then and a day doesn't go by without me picking it up, admiring it, turning the advance film winder (that is a marvelous clunk). I realise i love this camera! It really is the most beautifal camera i've ever seen.
So i think, alright i'll just wait until a GL shows up on ebay and buy it. Months goes by and nothing surfaces. Then i come to this forum and find that they are going for over 200 bucks!!
I currently shoot a Minolta AL-F which i take almost everywhere. However i would like something a bit faster preferably with apeture priority.
Does anyone know of anyone in australia that can fix my camera?
Otherwise, is the gsn really that much bigger than the GL? I'm also contemplating a QL-19, its just that shutter priority ****s me.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
