    Hi, I bought a film camera Zeiss Ikon Contaflex f2.8 45mm, I thought I would be able to remove the lens and use it with an adapter on my Sony camera. Well, I was wrong, I cab’t remove it. Is there any technic to do it?
    I’ll appreciate any answer.
    Thank you

    Hi Thea,
    could you post an image of your new camera. Early model of Contaflex cameras had built in lens, (Contaflex I and II) some with a compur shutter, later models had interchangeable lenses. This forum uses embedded images (and videos) only, so you will need to post it elsewhere (flickr e.g.) and post the link.
    In any case, adapting Contaflex lens won’t be easy, because AFAIK there are not commercially available adapters.

    If you are planning to buy some other old lenses, don’t hesitate to write me. We have tons of old Zeiss lenses laying around, especially those not so rare and even if we don’t have what you are looking for, I can usually give you some advice.

    BTW, if your Contaflex is working, why not putting a role of film inside and have some real legacy fun 🙂

    Here it is, it’s not interchangeable lens camera, it’s fixed :/
    As soon as I have more time, I’ll start to learn how to shoot film. I’m sure it’s fun and a lot of creativity

    Hi Thea, you have nice Contaflex I. Lens is not removable, (there are always ways around by they require certain level of experience and some special tools), I would suggest to keep it for your upcoming film adventures 🙂
    Cheers, Viktor
