Made from 1967 to 1970, the Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super BC is the penultimate of the Contaflex series of cameras which extends from 1954 to 1971. The Super BC introduces battery-powered TTL light metering with a CdS cell and keeps the features introduced in 1959 on the first Super, i.e. the film advance lever in place of the knob and the interchangeable film back which made the reputation of these cameras.

Otherwise, it keeps the main characteristics of all other Contaflexes. Aiming at the amateur market, Zeiss Ikon designed a SLR with a central shutter and a Tessar with interchangeable front elements. The front element of the built-in 50 mm f/2.8 Tessar can indeed be removed and replaced by complements with focal lengths of 35, 85 and 115 mm with a bayonet mount.

The Super BC was made in chrome and black finish. The lightmeter used one now forbidden 1.35 v mercury battery but it can easily be adjusted for today's 1.5 v batteries with a little screw located at the back of the body. The Super BC was followed by the Contaflex S which was the same camera except for some cosmetical differences.
