Advanced features and additional accessories.
On special request my second FX-3 tutorial: How to use the self-timer, how to use a cable release, how ot mount and use a flash and other tips and accessories for your Yashica FX-3 (Super 2000).
After having uploaded my first tutorial video for the FX-3 I was astonished to see how many young photographers still use these fine analog cameras instead of using digital cameras all the time! Recently I’ve got a request to make another video about the FX-3, and here it is! I hope it is useful for FX-3 users all over the world! If you have any question or observation, feel free to ask or comment! 🙂
The basics of the FX-3 use can be found here:

Hi, I'm using this camera and want to ask if it can shoot double exposures frame by frame?
Can you explain more about how to read the table please, im confused at reading the table, and when i have to use manual or auto mode? Please answer:)
A well done educational video , very helpful. Thanks.
Hello, do you know if we can double expose with this camera?
how many rewind rotation you guys usually do if you want to take a double-exposure photo?
hey there, so I've been using this camera for a while and i've been getting a lot of blurred images, in spite of being very careful while focusing. cannot really make out, but i after reviewing the shots they seem to be back focusing. what could possibly be the issue? the mirror, focus plate?
very good…. Brazil watching
Do you know the thread size for a soft release button?
Do you use filters? They're 49mm, right? I have a 52mm filter and needed an adaptor for the yashica, does it need any special adaptor or those regular aluminium ones work fine? (sorry for my english, it's not my first language).
what size is that release cable?
Tengo una igual quien save su valor
my visitor flash gun doesn't seem to work with my fx-3?? It works when pressing the flash test button on the gun but when I fire the camera shutter it doesn't work. I've tried everything
yes, very good.
Hi! I've just gotten this camera off ebay and the metering always say that its underexposed despite me shining it at the light. Do you have a solution to that? And what is the foam for? The foam is gone for the one I've gotten
Thank you for sharing this. Does this camera really have a loud shutter as some say? I am interested on using it for Street Photography.
thank you! this is such a useful vid <3
Any hack or system to prevent the shutter to be pressed accidentally?(I have the habit or reloading as soon I shot and though of asking here)
and the cable for connect the press button as well. 🙂
Hi May i know do you know where still have sell the flash?
Molt bon vídeo!!!!! He descobert moltes coses que ni me les hagués imaginat que podia fer amb la super 2000
@LZFILM ohh the flash was attached to the camera and yes i pressed the test button but there was no flash. Is there any replacement flash? 🙁
hello 😀 im kinda new to the fx 3. dad gave the fx 3 to me as a handmedown camera (i'm still thrilled though). the only problem is that the flash doesnt work anymore (i'm guessing its the bulb of the flash cus when i inserted batteries in it, the test button turned red as indicated by you means its ready but it didnt flash) what should i do?
Hello bro, I am using fx3 super and now when i changed the shutter speed and clicked while the back cover is open i got ma film advancer loose. now i could not make any clik could you help on this issue. the shutter is not released.
Yea defiantly! I also have a minolta 650si but I prefer my FX because I know the photos are a direct result of me. Unlike using a digital camera, say in A or S mode.
I think using a fully mechanical SLR makes the photography a whole lot funner too.
Good video. I'm using a FX-2 🙂
i have the yashica fx-3 2000, but the thing is its self timer lever got stuck. and when i opened the back lid the shutter curtain is opened, (i didnt put a film in it yet) its usually closed right? im really a noob to film camera btw.
ewig her dass ich ne spiegelreflex hatte.
Great video, dear Lars!*********
