The Yashica FR-II is an electronically-controlled 35mm SLR camera, first introduced in 1977. Based on Yashica's earlier FR I, the FR II dropped the manual exposure controls of that camera, with shutter speeds set automatically by the camera's metering system (except for Bulb and Flash settings). Equipped with the C/Y common bayonet mount, the FR-II can accept a variety of Contax/Yashica lenses and was targeted at the beginning photographer who did not want or need manual control of shutter speeds. Production ended in 1981.
