Test Roll Contax G2


Test Roll Contax G2

I recently got a screaming deal on a Contax G2 with the Zeiss 45mm and 28mm lenses. The 45mm is arguably the best piece of glass, ever and the Contax G2 has been hailed as the best rangefinder ever, even beating out the Leica models (so they say).

While some will argue a rangefinder should be MF, I kind of enjoy the AF. Once the camera came in, I headed out into the night to capture some of the vibes on the East Side of Austin. Later, I brought it to Colorado Bend State Park on a day trip with my parents, who were visiting from North Carolina. The results from my first test roll of 3200 Delta black and white resonated through my scanner yesterday.

Check out some wonderful randomness in the Gallery and I can’t wait to shoot more with this camer.

Look, I know this blog can be a tad narcissistic from time to time but as a “photographer”, I rarely find myself behind the glass. Or in this case, behind Zeiss glass. So when I see a rad photo of me and a homie, I have to give it some love. I had a fucking, absolute blast in SF last time and it was all because of a rad network of friends I’ve made over the years. Say what you will about the point and shoot 35mm camera craze that’s enveloped the young people in major cities throughout the US but Full Frame Collective has some of the most talented photographers running the show. Take Terry B for example. When he’s not shotgunning fruit juice at the hands of 18 year olds, he’s taking snaps with his ultra-wide Zeiss lens on his Contax SLR.
