The 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 has a general look similar to the Yashica rangefinder cameras.
There are two models; the original - introduced in 1961 has the light meter cell above the lens and the name plate below the bulb ejector. The meter cell of the 1962 Flash-O-Set II is 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.
