Contax 139Q Meter LED's


I have been given a Contax 139Q which is in lovely condition.
Because I am color blind, for the life of me I just cannot see those RED led's which indicate the shutter speed when the camera is on Auto.

Does anyone else have issues with this?
Hi Ian,

I never used the Contax 139Q, but my Contax RTS1 had also red indicators next to the shutterspeed.


Never had problems with it. I doubt that you can change that unfortunately.
Yes the vertical scale looks the same, my issue is my color blind problem, it would have been nice if they were yellow as it just makes the camera impossible to use on Auto.
