Of Dresden decided to produce a competitor to the Leica II. Designed to be superior in every way. The name Contax was chosen after a poll among its employees. Heinz Kuppenbender was its chief designer. Made between 1932 and 1936, the original Contax later known as Contax I after later models were introduced. Using a die-cast alloy body it housed a vertically travelling metal focal-plane shutter. The interlocking slats were aligned by specially made silk ribbons, which were very strong but subject to wear. The coupled rangefinder had a very. Long baseline, with its own eyepiece next to that of the viewfinder. Other main differences included focusing drive built into the camera body for use. With standard lens, removable back, shutter speed knob integral with film wind knob placed at the front of the camera body, and finished in black. Contax I, or Original Contax. Made between 1932 and 1936 by. The Contax I had (6) six identifiable variants. The removable back was for faster loading and reloading, the bayonet lens mount was designed for rapid lens interchangeability. The long-base rangefinder allowed more accurate focusing, and the vertical metal shutter not only gave a faster maximum speed but also banished the problem of shutter curtains burning.
