Hello trescam,   I recommend you check out the www.contaxcameras.com website or look up the model at the Kyocera camera website. All T series cameras had fixed lenses.

I have a Contax T3. The external dust cover is jammed. Can it be fixed?


It can be fixed by a camera repair service, not by you.
If you move the device it could lock or and/or fail completely.

What iso of film im going to use...?


For outdoor pictures in daylight, I'd suggest ISO 200 film. Indoors, you may have to go to 400 or even 800.

There certainly is nothing wrong with Kodak films. If you're shooting slides, you might want to give the Fuji films a try, they tend to give much more saturated colors.

I have a number of Contax lenses I inherited from my father and I was wondering what digital camera bodies they would fit.


Without adapters, none. Contax shared their CY lens mount with Yashica and both produced fine cameras and lenses but neither manufacturer survived the transition from film to digital so there are no digital cameras which can use them as standard.

With the correct adapter you can mount most of them to Olympus Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds for certain but some CY lenses may have rear elements which project backwards too far into the camera body. You'll also find that there will be no automatic stop down and no communication of aperture, zoom or focus settings to whichever digital body you fit them to.

Many CY lenses are excellent Carl Zeiss T* units but like almost all old 35mm lenses the optical designs were designed by engineers using slide rules and calculators. Except for the occasional "accidentally good" lens you shouldn't expect the optical performance to match contemporary designs which have the benefit of computer aided design and the latest advances in optical technology. This is especially true at apertures wider than around f8.

You may find adapters from CY to anything else to be hard to obtain/expensive simply due to lack of demand: even at their peak, Contax and Yashica SLR cameras were infrequently encountered and had very low sales volumes.

Although this may all sound negative, my advice is to check ebay for an adapter; many good Chinese sellers offer excellent and cheap adapters but research their feedback. Your lenses should be much better than the average 35mm SLR lenses and if you can accept a few compromises are still capable of producing very good photographs under the right conditions. Alternatively find a good used body like a Contax 139 or Yashica FX-D and scan the 35mm negatives afterwards for best results.

I just bought a second hand Contax RX but the film rewinding stars automaticaly after 5 or 6 shots, even in a 36 exposures roll. Is it a set mistake? Thanks. Julio


The auto-rewind is triggered when the film advance mechanism detects tension on the film, indicating the end of the roll.

It could be a couple of things causing the problem...

1) The particular roll of film you were using was wound too tight, or has got some moisture in it causing it to stick.

2) If it has done this with various rolls of film, it is likely that the clutch mechanism that detects the film tension is out of adjustment. This is something that a professional camera repair shop will be about to fix for you.

I'm not familiar with this particular model of camera, but there may be a facility to turn off the auto-rewind as a short-term fix.

Hope this helps!

stevdan,

take the screws off the bottom cover. there is a small lever pointing toward the front of camera with a black screw on it. gently move it to the left, this will release the lock lever. Now advance the lever and the shutter should fire. if not, it is not repairable. no parts
