tomcha75's review of Contax RX


“Overall, the Contax RX is a great camera if you can...”

Written on: 05/11/2003 by tomcha75 (1 review written)

Good Points
The camera is very very very sturdy and well built. The controls are also very well laid out and become second nature once used to them.

The camera takes excellent pictures and handles well.

Bad Points
The only thing that I can really complain about the Contax RX is that it does not have autofocus feature as some of the newer cameras do.

It is fine for 'artistic' shots where I can really take time to compose and focus, adjusting all the necessary controls, but it is useless in trying to take anything that resembles action photography as well as even slower moving objects.

General Comments
Overall, the Contax RX is a great camera if you can afford one. The body casing is not plastic, which helps in its strong design, but also adds some weight.

Think carefully of your future uses for this camera. Consider a newer and lighter model if you are planning to use the camera for action shots or just shots of moving subjects. As well, it probably isn't the best camera for travelling as it can get pretty heavy, especially with all the different lenses and flashes.

On the other hand, if you have the money and are planning to use it only for photographing still subjects, then this is a great one to have. But of course, you must have or plan to buy another, perhaps smaller camera for other more everyday uses.
