Yashica M-11 with brown original case!
The Yashica M-11 (often referred to as the Minister II) is a 35mm coupled rangefinder, produced in Japan around 1962.
The camera is fitted with a fixed Yashinon f2.8 45mm lens with a Copal SVL shutter, with a. built-in selenium meter.
The exposure controls are all around the lens; the rearmost ring on the the 45mm f2.8 lens controls focus - and has a lever attached, the next ring sets the aperture, down to f16; the next ring sets the shutter speed, between 1s 1/500s (+B). The front ring carries an Light Value Scale for transferring the meter reading to the controls. A "cross-coupling ring" allows adjustment of the aperture and speed in step to maintain the value set on the LVS ring.
There is a self-timer set by a lever underneath the lens barrel.
In 1963, the Minister II was replaced by the Yashica Minister III, where the meter cell was relocated to surround the lens.
