    Demontage Contax RTSIII

    Today I started an attempt to disassemble a Contax RTSIII body in order to replace the shutter. I hope I can bring this to a good end. So far, so good. I"ll keep posting on the progress, in case anybody is interested.

    I was just thinking the insides of cameras these days look more like transistor radios .

    When I see a camera body in this state I think of Terminator when his underlying electronics start to show through...

    I'm interested. I find my RTS III to be magic.

    LOL. I think it actually came out 20 yrs ago. I was just thinking, this all-computerized style of camera started back in 1985 with the Minolta Maxxum 7000. 27 yrs ago!

    My friend the Yashica/Kyocera repair guy says the original RTS (the RTS I) is a mess as far as the electronics go and they're mostly unrepairable today. Not so with the others, though I waited 7 years before he found the right spot to send my RTS III in Japan for repair. They had to replace the internal displays in mine to get it operational again. Works great now. He says the RTS II is an RTS I with better internal electronics design inside.

    Thank you, but it's the camera, not me!
