Chronology of cameras Ricoh 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

The GX is an evolution of Ricoh 500 G.
The differences between the two cameras are:

  • the addition of a battery test (red lamp)
  • the addition of a signal of armament of the shutter
  • the addition of a film loaded signal
  • the possibility of multi-exposure
  • a shutter lock




This coupled rangefinder camera has a filled well finder, since one finds marks there to avoid the errors of parallax. On the right side, it there a aperture scale, with a needle. At the ends of the scale, are the red zones of under and over-exposure . One finds there also the witness of load of the pile. A letter M appears there when the automatism is disconnected.
