But it has been designed well so that a half press to focus is a mere hair trigger that needs almost no pressure. One other small but important for me detail is that the Contax TVS has a standard lens cap rather than the fancy flipdown cover of the later model.

Thank you for your review ocntax photos.

The LCDs are small and basic. Where those cameras produce images of outstanding technical excellence this one is merely very good. For me it can help to see which distance has been metered has I am realy weird at using an AF in tricky situations but in most situation, it is just luxury but it confirm that the TVS was really designed has a compact Contax G and can be pleasant for rangefinder users.

High contrast, virtually no distortion, good colour rendition, almost no tendency to flare and some nice but subtle vignette, especially pronounced at wide apertures. To mitigate this I try to store the camera with the battery out in a fully extended position so at least the cable is straight when not in use.


Aperture is set with a firm and clicky ring on the lens itself with options from f3.


It takes one CR battery which seems to last forever if you go easy on the flash. Whether they fail mechanically or, more likely, electronically the chances are they will fail beyond repair in the not too distant future.

None of the Contax compacts have a reputation for great reliability and they are all long beyond realistic service. Reply Brady December 8, at To take the shot requires enough extra pressure to prevent mistakes. On such things reputations are built, especially in camera forums. No fiddling back through menus every time you start up. All frames under-exposed, and not too sharp. Sonny Boy Havidson Posted 8 years ago.

My name is Eddy. Autofocus itself is fast and very accurate; it triggers pretty much instantly on a half-press of the shutter regardless of whether the camera has been in sleep mode or not.

That being accidentally stuck on a minus is the only reason I can think of for cotax problem. Reply Lee August 27, at Reply Eddy September 11, at 1: And with a Contax badge on the front too! So easy to handle with fantastic lenses, probably the best of all medium-format cameras unless you want to shoot square.

In the off position this cable folds on itself inside the lens barrel in a quite disturbing position that is bound to create points of weakness.
