May I ask which film was used? Where those cameras produce images of outstanding technical excellence this one is merely very good.
But as someone who owns and uses quite a lot of other characterful, quirky and also some crappy lenses the relatively straightforward but high quality results of the TVS Vario-Sonar are right for the uses I make of it. It looks like this…. A half msnual of the shutter release replaces the frame counter with a quite handy confirmation of the exact focal length setting of the zoom.

So in summary the Contax TVS is a pleasure to use. Its body is made out of Titanium, it has a really nice Zeiss Vario-Sonar zoom lens and a good range of sensible manual controls. Reply Brady December 8, at It weighs just over grammes with battery and film loaded and, for me, it feels just right.

I have lots of Contax cameras but not a compact. A particular concern with the TVS is a thin micro ribbon cable connecting the lens to the camera body.
