Ricoh collectors page

Does anyone know what the site was of the collector that basically collected every ricoh film era camera and listed them and all the add ons that were made for them???? I can not remember for the life of me.

Yes, I think I found that site last year but I forgot to bookmark it and can't find it now. It was like a spreadsheet with yellow background.
Here is Butkus similar one, and it is only for K mount though.
Other brands with K-mount

Same here. It was broken down by everything from the first ones to the last, all lens mounts and then flashes and motor drives etc.... Ill keep looking. Its the only place i could find the part numbers etc for rare things such as the color filter kit and diffuser for the XR-400 flash set up.

I'm afraid that link is broken - but here's the Camerapedia Ricoh Links Page if you haven't yet found that.

Thanks for posting this link. I came across this site a few years back and then lost track of it again. I don't know that the information is authoritative, but it sure is extensive (not exhaustive...only lists 2 variants of the K-mount 50/2, non-P). It is truly sobering to look at the many versions of XR Rikenon 28mm lenses are floating around...almost as many as Vivitar 28s of the same vintage!

I just wish that the Webmaster there would make larger photos available for the lenses.


Steve

used to be fuller pictures. You could click and and blow them up.... not sure what happened. I am going to print out the pages for safe keeping.
this amount of information is in my mind important for all us film and classic camera buffs. Google does not even have any info on half the things here. ( and i looked 300 pages in on a general search)

That is the problem with the Web. There is a tremendous amount of information out there, but the search engines only return the new stuff or items for sale. A good example would be a link on the Ricoh site that goes to an OLD (last modified, 1999) page that discusses lens fungus. That page pretty much nails the subject, including the issue of fungus removal.
