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 🙂
