I have had a Contax T rangefinder camera for many years but have only just got round to putting a roll of film through it.

Designed by FA Porsche and made by Kyocera in Japan the Contax T was launched in 1984 featuring a folding front cover and a high quality Carl Zeiss 38mm f2.8 Sonnar lens featuring the famous T* multicoating, Henri Cartier-Bresson was known to be a Contax T user.

Armed with a roll of Poundland AgfaPhoto Vista 200 film (an old Fuji C200 emulsion I believe) I recently visited the Dorset coast for a 1 to 1 workshop and during the day managed to shoot the whole roll of 24 exposures. The film was processed and scanned (on a Fuji Photo Film Frontier SP-3000) by Jonathan at Snaps Photo Services Ltd. of Bournemouth.
