Yashica Y35: most bizarre digital camera of all time

https://petapixel.com/2017/10/10/yashica-y35-digifilm-camera-faux-film-rolls/

The upcoming Yashica Y35 is intended to "recapture the joy and meaning of analogue photography" while "eliminating the time and expense required for film development." So they have introduced a digital rangefinder camera that requires a "digiFilm" cassette - there are four of them, ISO 1600 rectangular format in color, ISO 400 rectangular format in black & white, ISO 200 rectangular format in color and ISO 200 square format in color - five fixed shutter speeds (which are totally meaningless, because the camera is aperture-priority with a stepless shutter), no preview LCD and a winding lever you have to cycle between exposures.

3. I was hoping for a simpler Fuji X100 type of camera.
