Super Electronic Body Only
**Very low serial number indicating it could have been one of the first few made** The Contarex Super Electronic was produced in 3 very limited runs from 1968-1975 and was the last SLR manufactured by Zeiss Ikon. Based on the earlier, mechanical Contax Super, the Electronic featured the the world's first electronically governed shutter. The electronic shutter not only allowed for greater accuracy, it allowed for the shutter timing function to be controlled externally by the Tele-sensor, an accessory meter cell which turned the camera into an aperture priority auto exposure camera. Shutter speeds ranged steplessly from 1/1000th up to 8 seconds. An accessory shutter speed indicator plugged into the side of the Tele-sensor, displaying the speed selected. Aimed at professional photographers, this cutting edge camera saw the dawn of a new era of cameras along with its high end, high spec accessories offering everything required for the professional of the day. Of the 3100 cameras produced, the first run (of which this camera originates from) was made with only one power source. These were made from 1968-1970. Camera Type: Pentaprism SLR Camera Film Size: 35mm Lens Mount: M42 AF: no Film Rewind: manual Flash: external Power Source: 2 x 1.5V ‘N’ mercury batteries Dimensions (mm): 150 x 100 x 65 Weight (g): 1350
