The Contax Tvs Digital was the last Contax-branded camera produced by Kyocera c. 2005. Even though it was a high-end camera at the time, it does not hold up to modern digital point and shoots, even with its Zeiss T* lens and CCD sensor instead of the more common CMOS. It is prone to flaring, color fringing, barrel distortion at the wide end, and the highest quality setting still produces very noticeable JPEG artifacts. Its only redeeming features in my opinion are the black and white mode, which has a very contrasty, japanese look, and the surprisingly strong built-in flash.
If only this camera was a bit quicker at focusing and storing images, I would use it a lot more for black and white snapshots. But sadly, it is more of a collectible.
