The Yashica Flash-O-Set is a 35mm viewfinder camera with selenium cell-controlled auto-exposure. It was made in Japan by Yashica. Its distinctive feature is a built-in flashbulb holder, for which there is an ejector button on the lower front, and a flash exposure table on the back. The Flash-O-Set had a general look similar to the Yashica rangefinder cameras.

There were two models; the original - introduced in 1961 has the meter cell above the lens and the name plate below the bulb ejector. The 1962 Flash-O-Set II's meter cell was mounted around the lens, and the manual shows that the camera seems to have been supplied with a neutral-density filter - which would cover the meter cell as well as the lens- for use in very bright conditions.

  • Lens: Yashinon 40mm f4, fixed focus

  • Metering: Selenium cell
  • Flash: built-in AG-1 bulb holder + x-sync PC socket
