I own an original Contax RTS, which I purchased in 1978. The Zeiss optics are extraordinary. Has anyone made a digital conversion kit for that model?

Does anyone have a wiring diagram or schematic for the PMD-6 Motor Drive? I have 3 of them; one works, the second has a broken wire inside it and the third has a blown component that I can't diagnose without a wiring diagram. It would be a lot easier if they were all wired alike, but they all have different colors of wiring. I have tried Contax and Kyoceras, but got no response. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Dick F.

Have just acquired an RTS II, advertised as RTS, so very pleased!
The fault it was sold with is an over exposure problem. 2 Stops apparently!
Anyone had any experience of this with the RTS II?
Chris.

I am interested in the Contax auto bellows. I am curious to know if it is also possible to use this bellows for perspective correction in architectural photography.

I recently acquired a beautiful Contax RTS that has been completely redone. I have 2 Zeiss lenses for it. Can someone provide me with instructions or a website that will explain to me how to rewind the film with the older style power rewinder? Thanks!

Hello, as I received not answer to my previous request I will add some considerations based on a serial numers observation from ebay. This in the hope that readers looking to their own cameras can help me in further understanding Contax serial numbers. Assunptions are the following:
1. ST, RX, RTS III, S2, AX could share the same serial number sequence;
2. G1/G2 follow a different serial numbering system (Some G1 number would otherwise backdate cameras to 1992 which cannot be)
3. N1 and NX follow an own serial numbering system.

I also observed:
ST and RTS III share numbers up to >65XX
RTS III are more common up to 85XX
RX can be found up to 10.0XX
S2 60th ed (1992) start colose to 11.0XX
RX also share with AX number over 15.0XX up to 30.0XX (millennium ed. from 2000)

I hope that someone can help me determining the global production of the series ST, RX, RTS III, S2 and AX which seems to be less than 40.000 cameras and mapping the serial numbers.
Jean Paul
