What? What's going on?! A brand new analogue SLR camera?! Yes, Reflex is a modern update of the timeless manual SLR 35mm film camera.

But, in the last few weeks, I have been lucky enough to shoot with this beautiful model of a Contax 167MT and I’ve to say that I’m impressed. I was completely unaware of the existence of this series of reflex produced by Kyocera under the name Contax and so I went a...
