Camera – “Contarex Super” Germany – 1965.
A reflex camera, that was very advanced for that time. This reflex model reduces parallax errors by observing the image through a prismatic system that exactly reflects what the lens sees.
According to the diaphragm setting, the depth of the range can be assessed; this gives very precise focussing control of the subject being photographed.
At its time, Contarex was one of the most blazoned brands in the world. However the high production costs, especially immediately after the war contributed to the company’s failure (Zeiss Ikon AG, Dresden & Stuttgart).
