The Yashica Minister II is a 35mm rangefinder camera with built-in selenium meter made in Japan by Yashica starting in c.1962.

The exposure controls are all around the lens; the rearmost ring on the the 45mm f2.8 lens controls focus - and has a lever attached, the next ring sets the aperture, down to f16; the next ring sets the shutter speed, between 1s 1/500s (+B). The front ring carries an Light Value Scale for transferring the meter reading to the controls. A "cross-coupling ring" allows adjustment of the aperture and speed in step to maintain the value set on the LVS ring.

There is a self-timer set by a lever underneath the lens barrel.
