In my first video about the Yashica FX-3 I didn't open the battery holder with a coin as it is supposed to be, it was a rather spontanous video, I wanted to take some pictures with it, so before I inserted the 35mm film cartridge I put my video camera to film it. In this new video I hope that you can see it better! 🙂
Sometimes a video can be clearer than an operational instructions booklet, and many times there it is not even possible to find one for these old, but nevertheless fine analog SLR cameras…
The Yashica FX-3 and the Contax 139 Quartz (along with the Yashica models FX-1, FX-2, FX-7 and FX-D Quartz and others) require 2 x 1,55V silver-oxide (SR44) or 2 x 1,5V alkaline (LR44) batteries.
The Yashica FR-I (along with the FR and the FR-II and the Contax RTS & RTS II) requires a 6V silver-oxide 544 or PX28 battery.
