This may not be much, but take a look at how I got the LCD to work:

It contains information on adjusting the rangefinder, which batteries to use, repairing/servicing, replacement eyepieces, problematic lenses and anything else I thought useful.

I'd be grateful for feedback:

• mistakes
• broken links
• omissions
• clarifications
• suggested additions.

If you have any new material, this is especially welcome.

The website has been created under a Creative Commons Licence (excepting my personal photos in my Gallery), so feel free to use/republish the material as you wish. All I ask is an acknowledgement and a link back to my website.

Last - but not least - thanks to everyone on this forum, as this is where I've gleaned a large proportion of the information.

Late adapter gives thanks

Didn't even know these cameras existed. First I saw a friend of mine with one and fell in love. One out of two then. Needed to convince the brain that this was a good idea. Your site more or less singlehandedly did the job. Thanks, couldn't be happier.

First Missalignment solved

Hi, today my first emergency with a missaligned rangefinder.

Facts that may be from interest to you.

1-It got missaligned in my bare hands as i tested some focus shft in a lens, no hitting it or shaking it or street fighting, just all the harshness of focusing and changing lenses!

2-I could solve it taking out only the hot shoe, i´ve read n this forum that in the rd1s it can´t be done through the srew under it. It positively could.

Want to thank Rich once more because i could perform this fix very quickly and without having to remove the whole top out!

Rich, thank you for operating such a great site.
I just bought a used RD1 and your site is a great place, to start, learning everything about this camera.

I am updating my website: there will no longer be a link from the home page at www.richcutler.co.uk to my Epson R-D1 pages.

The Epson R-D1 pages will still have their current addresses, and the Epson R-D1 home page can, as has always been the case, be reached at


So, the only difference is that you won't be able to navigate to my R-D1 pages from my new home page. You will can instead look at my photos, though! <grin>
