I think I have the AF-70 somewhere, but totally unusable.
The Ricoh plastic point & shoots from the late eighties through to the early nighties were actually very good.
I have a couple of good ones. The AF-700 & a Shotmaster 130 Super QD. The zoom lens on the shotmaster is a hoot.
I like them because they are Auto & do most of the work for you.
As for the Ricolet, I got one of those too. Cause I love the 50's cameras with their chrome & vulcanite.
Full manual control. I love these cameras also because you need to work everything out for the shot.
And if you get it right its just as rewarding for a photographer. They still have good glass.
This is a pic of mine. http://www.flickr.com/photos/33dollars/ ... 2805715451
Will need to put some colour film through it one day. Have shot B&W & found it vignettes at f16.
Genstar, have fun with the panoramic 35mm that is the AF-77
Gab, dust off the old Ricolet & put here back to work.
