Thanks for getting in touch! Again like the Fuji Klasse, the Contax T3 has a menu driven and fairly fiddly to use manual focus. I had, rather naively, never considered compact film cameras as being of a sufficient quality to […].

The Contax T3 deals with this frustration by halving the minimum focusing distance to 35cm, which really is quite an improvement. I was thinking the Contax T rangefinder may be what I want so the search may continue.

Interestingly this style of shooting is expanded upon with a custom function. But when it comes to these advanced compacts, with the warranty he gives, other options for a considered purchase are few and far between.

Hamish Gill I started taking photos at the age of 9. In terms of size, the Contax T3 measures up very well.

Hi Hamish, I am wondering if the T3 is still your regular companion or if it has been replaced by something else. If you want to underexpose a film by 2ev, yes you need to set the meter If you would like to read more about the T3, you can find my thoughts […].

This means the process is a little slower than it could be if it were under a thumb on the insturction. Now next time the camera is turned off then on again, that will be the mode that remains.


All is not lost though…. With the current secondhand prices, I could pick up two and a half Contax Ts for a decent T3. Reply Hamish Gill August 22, at Alongside this you will see the current setting for custom function 1. It also needs to be good value contx since its going to go everywhere with me, it instructjon to be robust.

What these numbers mean really is as follows. Loads of lens contrast. The usual suspects of flash off, flash on fill auto flash, auto flash with red eye and night portrait flash can be found. Reply Stefano June 19, at 9: If you have any photos you would like to share taken with it, feel free to add a link!

Thanks for depth of information that you share. Fortunately, returning to autofocus is as simple as tapping the AFL button. I suspect, with due respect to my fellow camera reviewers, this is something taken from some marketing drivel somewhere that has gained weight as something positive.

At the moment of writing this I have it mankal to after full press. If you shoot like this a lot, or want to spend a day instuction shooting this way, the chosen manual focus distance can be locked in. Well, now I do.

I had a feeling that the odd light might throw the meter. With the Contax, focus is the thing that is locked independently with the AF-L button. Reply Barry Reid October 22, at 7: You can find out about all my other projects on – hamishgill.


Whilst on the subject of the AF-L button, using custom function 5 it is possible to set it to lock both auto exposure and auto focus. Do you know anyone near by who could run a roll through it to test?

Learn how your comment data is processed. Setting CF6a will cancel the focused upon distance after the shot is taken, CF6b maintains the distance focused to until it is reset with another press of the AF-L button or the camera is switched off. Small is of course not the only specification for this hypothetical ideal carry everywhere camera, I also want it to be a good camera in many other ways.

The Contax T3 thankfully retains this function. CF5a sets it to just lock focus, 5b sets it to lock both.

This is done simply by holding the flash button until the mode starts blinking, pressing it again until the mode you want as instructiin is selected, then leaving it for a few seconds until it stops blinking. The point is I want a camera on me at all times. Anyway thanks for a great review, I really liked the part about metering and focussing separately as I do that alot so will be testing that out. I locked focus on Connie, took a reading off the sofa behind her, outside of the frame, locked it in with a half press, reframed and manyal.

It has scratched the itch I wanted it to.

Nothing but joy in each roll. A great resource on the T3.
