The Yashica FR-II was an electronically-controlled 35mm SLR camera, first introduced in 1977. Based on the Yashica 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 could accept a variety of Yashica / Contax lenses and was targeted at the beginning photographer who did not want or need manual control of shutter speeds. Production ended in 1981.
