2. General information
2.1. What info about Contax is available on the Web?
Probably more than I'm aware of. Here's a list:
o I'm maintaining a mailing list, the Yashica/Contax SLR list. You
can subscribe to the list by sending a mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org with in the body the line:
o I've also dedicated a part of my homepage
<http://www.cdegroot.com/photo/contax> to the topic. Information on
the mailing list and the FAQ is over there and more might be added
in the future.
o In January 1999, a competing Contax list was started for some
reason. It covers mostly the same topics as the Yashica/Contax SLR
list (officially it excludes Yashica, but I think that's an
inevitable topic). You can find it at
o On the Usenet, these newsgroups are relevant:
o rec.photo.equipment.35mm, about 35mm equipment in general. Lots of
this is of course about the big brands, but you'll find something
about Contax as well, occasionally.
o rec.photo.marketplace, where buyers and sellers meet. Contax stuff
is regularly offered over here.
o Information about the current line of contax SLR products can be
found on Kyocera's Contax Website <http://www.contaxcameras.com>.
o An awful lot of information on photography in general is available
from the mother of all photo FAQs, Guide to rec.photo
<http://www4.ncsu.edu/unity/users/j/jnweg/html/faq.html>. It is
especially important to consult this listing of pointers for
information on buying and selling via the newsgroups and by mail-
order before plunging into uncertain deals.
