KITH, MAD, Globe-Trotter, and creative agency NAMES have come together to reimagine the legendary Contax G2 Camera.
Produced between 1996 and 2005, the Contax G2 was the world’s most advanced rangefinder camera at the time, renowned for its ergonomics and technological innovation, it was a true accessory to the travelling man.
Crafted by artisans in Japan, it raised the bar as a masterpiece in electronic photography. Features such as a 35mm autofocus, a four-frame-per-second integrated motor drive, shutter speeds of up to 1/6000 per second, X-sync at 1/200 per second and an extended baseline-autofocus system with the Carl Zeiss Planar 45mm f2 lens, all made the G2 a camera ahead of its time and highly regarded even by today’s standards.
Each customised G2 is inspired by 4 iconic KITH/Fieg New Balance colour combinations. Finished with hand-applied ceramic multi-coloured coatings and housed in custom matching carry cases made by luxury heritage luggage brand, Globe-Trotter.
