Condition: Good

Take film photography to another level, with the Contax G2 w/ Biogon 28 mm f/2.8 T* - Chrome. It features an inbuilt autofocus motor that focuses each lens via a mechanical screw, thus letting you focus on the intended subject automatically, with amazing precision. The camera’s automatic shutter speed ranges between 16 seconds and 1/6,000th of a second. Use the hot shoe on the top for mounting an optional flash for taking bright pictures, even in low-light areas. This camera is made from a high-quality titanium alloy, which makes it sturdy. Powering this camera are two CR2 3 V Lithium batteries.

Optics and Focus

The Contax G2 is equipped with a Zeiss Biogon 28 mm f/2.8 T* lens, which is made of 8 elements in 6 groups and features a 10-blade diaphragm for producing an astounding background bokeh. This Leica M-mount lens offers a minimum focus distance of 0.5 m, and uses 46 mm filter threads. The diagonal, horizontal, and vertical viewing angles stand at 75°, 65°, and 46°, respectively. Use the built-in autofocus motor that focuses each lens through a mechanical screw, for accurate focus on a subject. Furthermore, the automatic shutter speed of the camera ranges from 16 seconds to 1/6,000th of a second.

Sensor and Screen

Unlike conventional viewfinders, the Contax G2 camera’s viewfinder lets you adjust magnification or framing to the focal length of the lens, thus making it much easier to compose shots.

Image and Video

The G2 from Contax uses a 35 mm film roll for taking high-quality photographs. You can advance and rewind it automatically at frame rates of 2 and 4 fps in the CL and CH modes, respectively.

Other Features

The G2’s hot shoe, which is located on the top, makes it possible to attach an optional flash for taking bright pictures in the dark. Made of high-quality titanium alloy, this chrome-colored camera is durable. Also, it runs on two CR2 3 V Lithium batteries.
