    Contax RX battery capacity - rolls per battery?

    I picked up a Contax RX without a manual (don't seem to be any available online) and would like to know what to expect in terms of the number of rolls per battery. With the 2CR5 battery, usually one can expect 15-30 36 exp. rolls per battery depending on the camera.

    What is the spec for the RX?

    Thanks!

    -Fred

    There is a new zeiss website. It is called ziforums.com. Perhaps someone there can answer your question.

    Thanks, Claire, I posted over there but it appears the site doesn't have near the traffic this site does.

    Fred-

    I'll look and see if I have an owners manual for my RX. If I do, I'll look up the battery life. I just saw this thread today.

    Flying Camera,

    I seem to remember that you use Contax regularly. If you don't have a manual, some anecdotal data would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    CONTAX RX battery capacity

    What the RX manual says is just an estimate, and has nothing to do with the reality. Depending on the live expectancy, quality and price of the battery, a statement might be not possible for your question.

    Cheers
