|Yashica Atoron Electro c1970|
The first Yashica Atoron appeared in the 1960s with the Japanese liking for Subminiature cameras. The Atoron makes 8 x 11mm frames. Whilst they have Minox pretensions, they aren't quite as small. The Earlier examples were silver, but this face lift to black came about in the 1970s and introduced a few more plastic parts, but still very nicely made, amongst its quality attributes are a shifting viewfinder to account for parallax errors. Fully automatic shutter with exposure up to 8 seconds. They were also available in presentation cases, and these turn up fairly commonly. A number of name variants were also produced.
