Contaflex interchangeable film backs

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by alan_swartz, Apr 22, 2010.

  1. In some searching of the 'net and this forum's archives, I've not found a definitive answer to this question: Do the Contaflex interchangeable film backs fit the Contaflex IV specifically?
    I've seen references to them fitting the "Contaflex line" and opposing references that say they fit the Super B and a couple of other variants. Does someone have an accurate answer? I have learned the difference between Contaflex and Contarex backs.
    Many thanks.
     
  2. Unfortunately they only work on the later model cameras. Incidentally they are APITA to use, and apt to not be light tight. Sounds like a great idea, but in practice is a loser.
     
  3. The magazine backs fit on the models that have a rapid-advance lever: Supers, Rapid and Prima.
