A Contaflex Prototype

Published in Spring 1983 Zeiss Historica Journal

Author: Hans-Juergen Kuc

See Page 3.

An early reference to a prototype camera marked Contaflex but obviously one for the eventual Contarex Bullseye camera of the post war period.  Since it is a prototype, it is not fully representative of the ultimate production camera . Now some 30 years later, other prototypes of the period have not really been found.
