Contax AX mirror slip …

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Deja-vue … this time I had the same issue with my Con­tax AX as with my Con­tax RX some time ago.

The mir­ror has slipped down about 3–4 mili­meters over time due to bad glue, loos­ing it’s adhes­ive qual­ity over time.

Due to this, the mir­ror crashes onto the lens rear ele­ment and hangs in upper pos­i­tion.

I tried the same kind of repair and … let’s see how it works.

This brand was so expens­ive in it’s era … shame on you Con­tax for using such a poor glue.

Enjoy 🙂

The Beauty and the Beast …

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Some time ago I pos­ted an image of two beau­ti­ful cam­er­as — the Can­on EOS 3 vs the Can­on EOS 5D.

Without all fur­ther com­ments, these two cams are beau­ti­ful tools from two dif­fer­ent worlds — one ana­log and one digit­al. So sim­il­ar on one side and so dif­fer­ent on the oth­er side.

Some time later, I found anoth­er pair, this time both from the ana­log era. A Con­tax Aria vs a Con­tax AX.

But … also this beau­ti­ful pair comes from two dif­fer­ent worlds.

One has a pure manu­al focus, the oth­er is the one and only example of a SLR with auto­fo­cus on (all) manu­al lenses.

Enjoy 🙂
