    The Yashica Electro was fairly common in the 70s, a well built fixed lens rangefinder. For flash, as far as I remember, it does not use a 'hot shoe' (where the flash makes the contacts with the camera through the slip on shoe) so it's fair to say that any older flash that is cord synched (connects to the camera through a cord called a PC cord). They are fairly cheap, you can find many on E-bay for dirt.

    Good luck.
