Picture frame, close focus frame, focus frame, shutter speed, exposure compensation, focus indication, flash ready, program indicator. The LCDs are small and basic. 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.

This is a quiet camera by any measure and compared to most film compacts is positively monkish. Let ten more years and I will be able to use an autofocus camera in the right way and then evolve to digital cameras.

In the off position the lens retracts right into the camera body then extends tvd few inches out as you zoom. The autofocus mechanism emits a short half-second mouse-cough when yvs focus while the film wind motor is about as quiet as these things can ever be. Focus is set with the dial on the right and has options for autofocus, 0.

To mitigate this I try to store the camera with the battery mznual in a fully extended position so at least the cable is straight when not in use. It looks like this…. Is the LCD working to show the current exposure compensation? On the very rare occasions I care about those things I use the LCD indicator to find 35mm and shoot at f5. The manula related with the DOF button was just to illustrate how I can be long to discover a new function on a camera, it has no direct connection with my TVS I have the first film version which is not an SLR.

But what about the images? Edited by Sonny Boy Havidson member 8 years ago. The action is pretty smooth with a subtle but noticeable extra effort needed to move from off to on and prevent accidental activation in your pocket or bag.

LCD, automatic resetting additive type; Also indicates lens focal length in use, remaining time for self timer or elapsed time in Bulb shooting mode. I much prefer this. Groups of people, the odd portrait and street scenes.

The monster is the Unlike the later Contax TVS versions, and in line with the generally tactile design, the zoom is controlled using a physical tab on the lens barrel. 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.

The Contax TVS. The ‘executive’ compact zoom – Guest review by Eddy

Comfortable, tactile and with a nice balance between physical controls and useful electronic displays. My Instagram handle is expectgrain and I’m always on the lookout for new people to follow tvz talk to. Beautifully solid in a good way, but much too weighty…. My name is Eddy. The Contax TVS has a thread for If conntax want a purely mechanical camera with the legendary Zeiss lenses then it is very fine indeed.

High contrast, virtually no distortion, good colour rendition, almost no tendency to flare and some nice but subtle vignette, especially pronounced at wide apertures.
