SOURCE: Hi, I would like to

The 8M and 5M in the picture size setting is 8 megapixel or 5 megapixel. You can change to a lower i.e 5 M so that you can get more pictures onto the same memory card because the resolutions change and space occupied is also less.

Lens error

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct your problem. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:
And here's a video summary of the steps:

My friend is trying to remove the lens from a yashica J 7 but we cannot figure out how to do it. We cannot find a lens release button. Can you help?

Greetings Joe - The Yashica uses the classic and pretty much universal Pentax style M42 lens mount.
There is no button, switch, etc. You just turn the lens counterclockwise to remove and clockwise to install a lens. See picture below.

Showing zoom error.

I'm not sure if this will work as I have yet to try this for my self. But according to others who have had this problem pulling lens out while camera is off and then restarting camera works. If this does work please notify. Or just tell me what happens when this is done

Can I get an owners manual for this camera ?

I don't reconize the model number but is this a new seems to me that this may be in the range of 20-25 years old.....if so the original manual was pretty scant..........but the camera was great....try the normal sources.....ebay, amazon, and maybe even C-Net.

Sorry for the vagueness. You might even try a google search for something like "yashica camera forum" "yashica photo forum" even "yashica forum". you will more than likely have to filter thru some info and then refine your search terms.
