Nice work! Which Ricoh 50mm?


Steve
Thanks Steve! It's the Rikenon 50 mm 1:1.7 without a Ricoh-pin. It's really small, cheap and relatively sharp from f/2.8 on. I always use the Pentax ME/Ricoh 50 mm combination when I'm afraid my camera might get damaged, stolen or lost or the K 50 1.2 & FA 50 mm Macro are to big and heavy.
Cheers,
David

Steve, I was desperate: at a camera show and nothing really appealed to me (well, there was an original Simmon Omega press camera...) and I settled on this. The RF patch is very difficult on this one -- the patch itself is clear enough when I block the VF, but the VF itself has a blurry something right in the middle. So I can only use it with high contrast and bright things. I wasn't going to buy it but the guy came down $50 and I figured, why not, I can try to clean it sometime. Nice camera.

For a while we rented the top floor of this house in Sydney. Our humble car sat on the street outside. 1962 Kodak Retinette 1a and don't remember the Kodak B&W film used. Probably Panatomic X

Cool, a National Graflex. Nice little camera, though I find it more complicated to use than a regular Graphic... Not too many of these are still in use.






A couple more from the Canon 7 / Industar / Tri X

Nice work again with the Canon/Industar combo. Sorry about your rangefinder issues with the Canon 7. The patch on my Canon P is still good, a fact of which I am quite grateful. I am impressed with the Industar 61. Much has been made of the reported difference in helicoid pitch of the FSU LTM lenses from Leica standard, but I have not seen that it make much of a difference in day-to-day shooting.
