Hello to all!
Im the recent proud owner of a Yashica Electro 35 GSN. It is my first rangefinder, and indeed my first real film camera (I learned on digital as it were). Anyway, my problem (or at least i think its a problem) is this. the split yellowish image in the viewfinder which is used to focus is extremely faint, and in certain light not really even visible. the picture in the manual seems to be much more defined. On closer inspection it seems that a strip of what seems like gold foil inside the viewfinder, on the right side, is missing a chunk in the middle. Im not sure if this an illusion, or just a worn out layer of something or other. perhaps the VF needs cleaning?
Any advice appreciated!
P.S the shutter, at times sticks a wee bit. any way to remedy this?
