Where those cameras produce images of outstanding technical excellence this one is merely very good.

Whether they fail mechanically or, more likely, conhax the chances are they will fail beyond repair in the not too distant future.


Hee hee Jeremy, glad you liked the review. I now mostly shot at real aperture when I use an SLR The answer related with the DOF button was just to illustrate how I can be long to discover a new function on a camera, it has no direct connection with my TVS I have tgs first film version which is not an SLR.

The Contax TVS. The ‘executive’ compact zoom – Guest review by Eddy

Two dials, three little buttons and two LCDs. Exposure metering is also good. Unlike the later Contax TVS versions, and in line with the generally tactile design, the zoom is controlled using a physical tab on the lens barrel.

In autofocus mode the LCD shows a little black circle if focus has locked successfully. I much prefer this. In the off position the lens retracts right into the comtax body then extends a few inches out as you zoom. The G2 rangefinder is my favourite 35mm camera but with one huge caveat, it lacks a true manual focus.


No great shakes but plenty good enough for me in daylight. A half press of the shutter release replaces the frame counter with a quite conntax confirmation of the exact focal length setting of the zoom.


Is the LCD working to show the current exposure compensation? The design is clean and sleek but perhaps a little bland for some tastes. Reply jeremy north September 11, at 5: Get ready for an attack of GAS.


But here on 35mmc objectivity is only ever part of the story. The shutter release button is recessed and positioned quite far to the right of the top plate. So much to get my teeth into.

The monster is the The autofocus mechanism emits a short half-second mouse-cough when seeking focus while the film wind motor is about as quiet as these things can ever be. The Vario-Sonar lens has a modest mm zoom range which is perfect manuwl this type of photography I think. The action is pretty smooth with a subtle but noticeable extra effort needed to move from off to on and prevent accidental activation in your pocket or bag.

Ko-Fi allows one off donations. Groups of people, the odd portrait and street scenes. This is the pick of the bunch.
