Maxwell Enhanced Matte Screen Upgrade | camera purchase only
ONLY FOR CAMERA KIT PURCHASES.
In the corresponding mages, the Maxwell screen is on the left/top.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This upgrade replaces the stock focusing screen in the camera with an Enhanced matte screen from Maxwell Precision Optics. This option is for an upgrade to the stock screen, therefore the camera kit will still only include one focusing screen.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
A Maxwell Enhanced screen is great for two reasons:
1. It brightens up your field of view a few stops when you look through the viewfinder, and
2. It lends more certainty to your subject being in-focus; the subject more clearly "pops" into focus
Ultimately a Maxwell Enhanced screen helps attain a higher image keeper rate. A common complaint about the Contax 645 system is that it can be tricky to manually focus due to its somewhat dark viewfinder, making it hard to determine if the subject is in-focus, especially when shooting wide open at f/2. The Maxwell screen addresses these issues, and in-turn makes the Contax 645 an even better system. There's a reason so many photographers rely on a Maxwell screen -- they're the best!
