Remember Contax?

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Back in 2005 when  Kyocera decided to terminate the 35mm Contax branded business, I wrote a small piece about this issue, outlining possible causes that led to the failure. Today, after four years, I receive a link with Chris Sandström’s presentation, Contax, Disruptive Innovation and Digital Imaging. Also, Japan Exposures recently published an article in two parts called Tales of Glass and Ceramics covering the same issue. What is still more puzzling is what exactly happened to the Contax 645 line of products, as it wasn’t part of termination announcement.
