Contax T3 "Double-Teeth" Version

By chris, April 14, 2013

I bought my Contax T3 without ever knowing that there is such a thing as double-teeth version. Luckily for me, my camera has it. You can see the teeth by inspecting the film spool. This is a good indicator that your camera is a late model, but then again, it is also possible for an early production to have it if it has been upgraded.

Here is how the teeth looks like when loading a film. It is different from other cameras I have which has slots to put the film leader in. For me, this makes it quite tricky to load because there are times the teeth doesn't catch the sprocket. Compared to my other cameras, I am definitely sure that I have loaded it correctly even after I close the back/bottom plate.
