The Yashica J-3 is a 35mm film SLR camera introduced in 1963. It was a redesign of the Yashica Pentamatic line, but incorporating a top shutter release, M42 lens mount (instead of the Pentamatic's bayonet) and a semi-coupled CdS light meter, where the user had to manually transfer the suggested aperture setting to the lens. The meter is powered by a mercury battery.
