medium format panoramic cameras

Ricoh 500 Rangefinder


I was given this in return for helping friend to understand his new high-end digital SLR.
Note the tabs on the lens to make focussing easier.

A nice fast street camera or maybe a good starter for someone learning photography.

The lens is a 45mm f/2.8. It has a couple of unusual features: the wind-on ("triggermatic") is underneath the camera and it works well in that postiion.

Also, it has a guide number setting so that the shutter speed and aperture can be adjusted together by stops.
