That was the marketing spiel used when the Yashica Electro 35 first hit the streets way back in the 70s. And indeed, the spiel was backed up by actual shots taken with the camera, where the only light was from a single candle.
How was that possible? Well, the main reason is that humungous f1.7 lens, made of solid high quality optical glass.
Without further ado, here’s what a professional says about it:
“The shutter is the quietest I have seen, and Ive seen millions of cameras, believe me! Its a wonderful, stepless, leaf shutter, so quiet, that you may even prefer it to those on your fancier cameras. And legend has it that these cameras can effortlessly take a photo by candelight, something even the mighty Leica is hard-pressed to do, if at all!”
