The Ricoh 500G was a compact, 35mm, rangefinder film camer.
I bought this online from a forumer in PhotoMalaysia. This cute little camera works fine with alkaline batteries and is aperture priority.
The Ricoh 500G
was a compact, 35mm, rangefinder film camera manufactured by Ricoh
since 1972. The 500G featured Electric Eye, which was CdS photocell that
automatically set right lens opening for optimum result at any time.
Manual lens-opening setting was also possible. The 500G also offered a
coupled rangefinder with parllax correctin mark, a built-in self-timer,
and a hot-shoe. The camera was equipped with a mechanical leaf shutter
with speeds ranging from 1/8 to 1/500th of a second, plus B (bulb).
Flash synchronization also from 1/8 to 1/500th of a second. The Ricoh
500G fitted with a Rikenon f/2.8 40mm lens, which was very sharp. The
camera was powered by one 1.35V mercury cell. Below are few photographs that I shoot with my Ricoh loaded with fujifilm superia 200.
