Question about Contax T2 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Kyocera Cerami Pressure Plate in Contax T2 Back has developed a hairline crack, resulting in just-out-of-focus negatives. Assuming repair is impossible or spendy, I'm looking for a new or used back instead. Don't need or use Data Back but would consider one if a standard back is not available. What can you do?

Plzz give me the Address Of Yashica Service Centre at Location-India State-gujarat City - Surat


Sorry, there isn't one. Contax/Yashica no longer exists as a company and there is no ongoing servicing/spare part support.

If you have a fault then you must use any generic camera repair shop of your choice, but some faults will not be repairable if spare parts are required unless the shop has scrap donor spares. Given that Contax/Yashica were never mass sellers, finding spares donors is also difficult.

Sorry that I cannot provide the answer you really want on this occasion, but I hope that my reply has been of some assistance to you.

If it has the 2.4l 4cyl "Twin Cam" you most likely need to replace the plastic housing that the ignition coils sit in. These develop hairline cracks and leak spark to the cam towers, which results in a nasty misfire.

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.

How and When to use AUTO FOCUS and MANUAL FOCUS of my contax t2 camera?


There are no rules or conventions for this. It is totally up to you to chose which method to use.

Sometimes when taking images in close up where a leaf or stalk may invoke autofocus to lock onto the wrong object to get a clear pic, then select manual so your subject is in focus

Depth Of Field is also associated with focusing, autofocus does not always deal well ith DOF situations. It might be better for you to get a simple book on digital photography to help you understand how to get the best results from your camera

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.

Auto focus does not work on the 135mm


hi i am sagha a camera repairer from mumbai, i have gone through such problems much oftenly,in your case i think it is the internal problem with the flex board inside the lens which is multitwisted on metal plate after prolonged use becomes stiff & brittle and creates hairline cracks on the pcb which in turn breaks the tiny tracks & leads to malfunction at 135 mm.

Out of focus


Hey Paul FB,
One reason this could be happening is if the film pressure plate is set incorrectly. If you are using 120 film you should of course have it set to 120, and if you’re using 220 film you should have it set to 220. If you have the pressure plate set correctly the plate might be broken, and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If your subject is in the middle of the frame and the edges of your images are either background or foreground you might just have the aperture set to a large aperture resulting in a shallow depth of field. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
