Abstract Photometric observations in Sloan g′ and i′ bands of four W UMa binaries, V796 Cep, V797 Cep, CSS J015341.9+381641 and NSVS 3853195, are presented. Our observations showed that CSS J015404.1+382805 and NSVS 3853195 are the same star. We determined the initial epochs T0 of all targets and found improved values for the period of NSVS 3853195. The light curve solutions of our data revealed that the components of each target are almost the same in terms of mass, temperature, radius and luminosity. The stellar components are G and K spectral types and undergo partial eclipses. All systems have barely-overcontact conﬁgurations and can be classiﬁed as H subtype W UMa binaries. We established that the relation between the luminosity ratio l2/l1 and mass ratio q of our targets is approximately l2/l1 = q1.5.
