Contax T2 Champagne 35mm Film Camera Point & Shoot with 38mm f/2.8 Lens
A beautiful, solid metal chassis made in Japan. Sharp, wide aperture Carl Zeiss glass made in Germany. A simple, easy to use autofocus system. These three key aspects make the Contax T2 an incredible camera - what more could you ask for in a luxury, high-end point and shoot?
Released in 1990, the Contax T2 was the second of the Contax T series of high-end compact film cameras targeted at the professional and luxury consumer markets. The Contax T2 was offered in in champagne silver, black and gold plated finishes.
The Contax T2 was renowned for its Carl Zeiss T* multi-coated Sonnar f/2.8 38mm lens comprising 5 elements in 4 groups and user friendly controls. While it offered full automation, including Autofocus and Program AE, the Contax T2 was one of the most readily user-controllable cameras of its era, featuring Aperture Priority AE selection on a dial on the retracting lens body, and manual focus on a thumb dial. Exposure compensation of +/-2 EV in 1/2 EV steps is controlled by a dial at the top left and the EV compensation is given in a small window. Shutter speed and focus lock confirmation is given in the viewfinder.
