Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super BC

Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super BC
The Super BC was on of the last in the line of Zeiss Ikon's Contaflex series - released in 1965 it was the first one to have TTL metering. I picked this up at a flea market as a full kit for next to nothing. Unfortunately the battery compartment on mine is corroded shut and I haven't yet attempted to fix it - on the plus side the camera is fully functional without a battery except for the light meter. I wanted to try this camera out so I loaded it with Kodak Ultra Max 400 and brought an external light meter. All of the controls for the camera are on the lens - which took a bit of getting used to - and the film loading is a different than most cameras because the Contaflex's had interchangeable film back. The spit-image focusing was a piece of cake and the lens was tack-sharp. For a mechanically complex 40 year old camera the thing shot like a dream - now to fix that battery compartment.
