Denise Nelson of Kyocera Yashica (UK) Ltd has confirmed today to Ian Andrews of ePHOTOzine that Kyocera has stopped production of all 35mm and Digital Cameras bearing the Kyocera and Contax names. She did, however state that the 645 range would continue in production for the foreseeable future.

An official announcement will be released early next week.

Contax cameras have been produced since the early 1930's, when the brand was launched by the legendary German manufacturer Zeiss Ikon. Contax joined forces with Japanese manufacturer Yashica in the 1960's, becoming part of electronics giant Kyocera in the mid-1990's.
