Overview

THIS IS A USED ITEM
IMAGES ARE FOR ILLUSTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY
Condition: Fair

The Contax II Rangefinder Camera brings back the good old days of analog photography. This film camera comes with a 50mm f/2 Zeiss Lens whose optical construction is based on the Planar design for delivering high-resolution results with well-distributed illumination. This camera uses the Helios photoelectric exposure meter. A milled wheel is provided for measuring the distance between the subject and the camera. This rangefinder camera sports a distance-meter viewfinder combination for accurate focus on a subject. You may increase the focal plane shutter's speed to 1/1250th of a second. You may attach a flexible wire to the camera to take photos with long exposures.

Optics and Focus

This film camera from Contax comes with a 50mm f/2 Zeiss Lens that is ideal for point-and-shoot photography. A T* anti-reflective coating is applied on the lens elements for eliminating the issues of flare and ghosting. This lens is made with 6 elements in 4 groups, and features a 10-blade diaphragm that efficiently produces a smooth, rounded bokeh in the image background. This Zeiss lens can capture crystal clear photos of objects from as close as 70 cm. Moreover, the distance meter-viewfinder combination in the camera ensures accurate focusing. This film camera has a focal plane shutter that can operate at a maximum speed of 1/1250th of a second.

Sensor and Screen

This Contax camera comes with a fixed viewfinder that has an eyepiece, which lets you comfortably view the scene or subject at hand.

Image and Video

This Contax rangefinder camera captures photos on a 35mm film. A total of 36 exposures can be created with one film roll.

Other Features

The Contax II Rangefinder features a shutter-release-delay button that lets you set a buffer of up to 10 seconds before the shutter is released. Commonly known as the self-timer, this feature comes in handy for those group photographs that you wouldn’t want to miss being a part of. This camera can be teamed up with other special finders, thanks to the integrated top shoe. The flexible wire release that is screwed into the shutter button helps in capturing pictures with long exposures. For long-hour shoots, you may mount this camera on a tripod. You may loop in a neck strap through the metal eyelets of this camera for conveniently moving around while taking intermittent shots.

Elements / Groups:
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
