Every Thursday we’re letting Blurb employees show off their cameras and the shots they take with them. Afterall, we’re photographers too. Already we’ve seen a great array of digital, analog, and instant. And there’s much more in-store. Here’s this week’s:
Job: Internet plumber
Camera: Contax RTS III 35mm SLR camera
Contax was an early pioneer in the compact 35mm camera field, starting in the 1930′s with a series of finely engineered camera bodies using the superb Zeiss lenses. From the start Contax cameras were designed as part of an entire photographic system, incorporating a whole line of bodies, lenses and accessories.
The RTS III model was the end result of decades of continuous development and refinement. Released in 1990, it is a sophisticated piece of film camera technology. But true to its Teutonic origins, it has exactly what you need and nothing that you don’t. For the casual picture taker it is likely a pain to deal with. For the creative photographer it is an absolute joy to learn and use effectively.
Mike has done an amazing job of talking about this camera, and its lens, in depth and it’s well worth the read. We have many more cameras lined up (from boxes to DSLRs), so check back with us each Thursday for another slice of camera life. You can also follow blurb_books on Instagram for fresh camera pics.
