Contax G1 with a Zeiss Planar 2/45mm

Friday, September 7th, 2018

This time a beau­ti­ful Con­tax G1 found its way to me, accom­pan­ied by three legendary Zeiss lenses. All parts are in good shape, so let’s see what comes out when the first film is pushed through.

On the one side, the Con­tax G-Sys­tem (i.e. the G1 and even more its sib­ling the G2) is said to be the world’s … Read the rest

The Beauty and the Beast III

Friday, August 10th, 2018

From time to time I take a pic­ture show­ing two cam­er­as side by side where I think it’s worth it. The first and the second image can be found here, show­ing two Can­on bod­ies (a Can­on EOS 3 vis-a-vis a Can­on EOS 5D) and two Con­tax bod­ies (a Con­tax Aria vis-a-vis a Con­tax AX).
