The Electro 35 CC is a compact 35mm rangefinder camera from Yashica released in 1970. Sometimes it is wrongly considered part of the Electro 35 series of cameras, which have a larger and heavier body and a 45mm standard lens. The „CC“ has a fast and wide 35mm, f/1.8 lens and aperture priority auto-exposure.

It features has a maximum shutter speed of 1/250. Film speeds of 25 to 500 ASA. There is no indication of aperture or shutter speed in the viewfinder, overexposure (red) and slow (<1/30s) shutter speed (yellow) illuminated arrows. The CdS metering cell is located above the optics and within the barrel of the lens. This makes it easier to screw-in filters and have the exposure compensated.

Cameras have been spotted, which were named Yashica Electro 35 CCN Wide [1]. However, it seems to be the same camera.
