Your favourite titanium body compact 35mm camera

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by MTC Photography, Jul 1, 2018.

  1. My favourite titanium body 35mm compact camera is Contax T, and Contax T2

    I also have a Minox M.D.C, which has a titanium shell, but inside is still plastic.

    Contax T has a five element Carl Zeiss Sonnar 2.8 /3.8 lens.

    Contax T has mechanical shutter.

    One battery lasts for years.

    Titanium body camera is scratch resistant, I do not need camera case for it.

    Contax T is probably the smallest full frame compact 35mm titanium camera. Leica similar camera is a bit larger.

    I have two Contax T, one silver one black. I like the silver version more.

  2. I have the Yashica T5 it doesn't have the sacred words CZ or Sonnar, but it too has a very fine lens... I doubt the body is Titanium but I used this a lot when travelling with family for snaps!!
    What other cameras have Titanium bodies besides these two "noble" P&S cameras?
  3. The Nikon 35Ti and 28Ti?
  4. I would like to have the Nikon F3T.
  5. I have the Nikon F3T and it's my favorite film camera to use. (I have a couple of dozen!) It's very pretty and the meter works great. I have Nikon AiS lenses 28mm/2, 50mm/1.2, and 105mm/2.5.
