Contax RX 35mm SLR Film Camera Body


Here we have the excellent Contax RX 35mm SLR film camera body. This camera is fully functional and prepared for another lifetime of photo taking.

The camera body is in great condition and perfect mechanical condition. The mirror box, viewfinder, focusing screen, battery compartment and film compartment are all clean and free of dust, damage, and debris.

All functions work as they should and all levers, dials, switches, and knobs actuate with precision. The mount is in excellent unmarred condition, and the shutter is similarly perfect. The light meter works flawlessly and the auto-exposure mode works as it should. Timing is accurate.

This camera is among the very best electro-mechanical SLRs ever made, and possibly the best Contax SLRs ever. It is extremely advanced, and capable of nearly everything any photographer could ever ask of it. The shutter is accurate to an unprecedented level, down to 1/4000th of a second, and the auto-exposure system is flawless, resulting in perfect automatic exposures (when shooting in Auto mode) every time. Switched to manual, the camera offers meter assistance and suggested settings, while allowing the photographer to choose their own shutter speed and aperture. 

This versatility makes it an excellent choice for experienced photographers and newcomers alike. 

It's C/Y mount allows the user to fit any of a massive range of amazing lenses, including those made by Carl Zeiss and Yashica, two incredible brands well-known for their amazing optics. 

The camera will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
