Contax SLR Resources FAQ Cees de Groot <mailto:cg@cdegroot.com> ____________________________________________________________ Table of Contents 1. Introduction 1.1 Disclaimer, copyright 2. General information 2.1 What info about Contax is available on the Web? ______________________________________________________________________ 1. Introduction Welcome to the Contax SLR FAQ. This FAQ, a work in progress, is meant to collect knowledge about resources on the World Wide Web that deal with Contax 35mm SLR's. This FAQ is available on the World Wide Web, in several formats: o HTML format <http://www.cdegroot.com/photo/contax/contax-slr- faq.html> o SGML format <http://www.cdegroot.com/photo/contax/contax-slr- faq.sgml> o plain text <http://www.cdegroot.com/photo/contax/contax-slr- faq.txt> o PostScript <http://www.cdegroot.com/photo/contax/contax-slr-faq.ps> If you have any problems, suggestions, or questions, please contact the maintainer, Cees de Groot <mailto:cg@cdegroot.com>. 1.1.

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 majordomo@cdegroot.com with in the body the line: subscribe yashicacontax-slr 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 http://www.mailinglist.net/contax 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. -- Cees de Groot http://www.cdegroot.com <cg@cdegroot.com> GnuPG 1024D/E0989E8B 0016 F679 F38D 5946 4ECD 1986 F303 937F E098 9E8B
