Contax 167 MT


The Contax 167MT is a 35mm SLR camera produced by Kyocera in under the Contax brand name.

This camera has a electronically-timed shutter unit with speeds from 16s to 1/4000. Flash synchronisation is electronic at 1/125 of a second. It uses a Contax/Yashica bayonet lens mount. It is compatible with MM lenses which have a metal flange that allows the camera to set the aperture. Some program modes cannot function without MM lenses; the camera will automatically switch to Av mode if an improper mode is selected.

There are six program modes, to select press and hold the mode button while sliding the operating lever.

  • Program: Normal program mode
  • Program High: Favors a higher shutter speed
  • Program Low: Favors lower shutter speed
  • Tv: Shutter priority exposure
  • Av: Aperture priority
  • M: Manual exposure also with bulb setting

There are three metering modes that can be selected when powering on the camera. Setting the power dial to “square” will put the camera in center-weighted mode, “circle” for spot metering mode, and AEL auto-exposure lock. The TTL center-weighted or spot metering system features a SPD with a range of 0 to 20 EV (ISO 100 with f/1.4 lens) with a film speed of 25 to 5000 ISO. An exposure compensation dial make it easy to adjust settings and can be changed from -2 to +2 EV in 1/3 step.
