    Hi folks. I don't collect old cameras, and am really not too sure what I have here. While cleaning out the attic, I came across these.

    Contax IIa, some filters, a lens, 8mm, other stuff.

    The link to the album is here: Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

    Thank you for any info that you can provide!

    Edit to add, I see Photobucket spams album links. If that is a problem, I can add the URL tags, I think.

    This article will give you a bit of background on the Contax IIa. The instructional brochure is a really nice find to go with the camera. Zeiss Contax IIa IIIa

    I have many interesting things in my attic. They were my great uncle's cameras. I have no connection to the guy and, as I mentioned, I'm not really interested in old cameras. I also have the receipt from 1954 for some of the equipment, too. I think I want to sell this stuff.

    ""Many considered the pre-war Contax the "professional" 35mm camera, while the Leica was for amateurs. ""
