Contax 645 system


Contax 645 camera is an autofocus 6x4.5 cm SLR camera. In combination with the legendary Carl Zeiss T* lenses, the 645 becomes a tool for production of photographic art. Autofocus backed by a precision manual focus system provides the ultimate in focusing flexibility. Film flatness problems are adressed for the first time in any medium format camera through the development of a Real Time Vacuum system. Of course, the unrivaled Carl Zeiss T* lenses are the stars of the system. These lenses offer unmatched resolution and distortion control while T* insures that contrast and color are unrivaled.
