    Are there any Contax owners out there that can provide me with a quick
    explanation of the remote cable release unit? I just bought one on
    eBay and no instructions were included. I tried it, and it works, but
    I'm a little confused on the two ways that it trips the camera (I have
    a G2). Any help welcome. Thanks.

    Hi Joe

    Unfortunately Contax Remote switch come from old non AF Contax system.
    So there is only 2 wire connection. one ground , one shutter release.
    So when you press the remote release button, The G2 going to focus,
    Autoexposure ( some lag time) and then release the shutter.
    The slide is to lock the shutter into bulb setting.

    Hope this help.
