The Electro 110 is one of a small number of cameras for 110 film cartridges sold under Yashica branding. Its 27mm F/9.0 lens has a simple near-far focus slider. While its electronically-timed shutter boasts a range from 1/400 to 10 seconds, it is not related to the better-known "Yashica Electro" rangefinder models or 35mm SLRs.
While accepting Magicubes, it was also sold as an outfit with a matching MS-110 electronic flash which clips into the flashcube socket.
Originally the camera would have been powered using a 4-volt mercury "K" battery (introduced alongside certain Kodak 110 models), although these are no longer available.
