Ricoh "35" S
Interesting camera found... in my camera cache.
This Ricoh came with a few camera's I bought a couple of years ago. I never saw light through the shutter although the camera cocked and made all the noises it should.
The interesting thing is that the camera looks as if it's been closet bound since nearly new. Exceptional condition. The rangefinder is bright and has a great dual image coincidence. The covering is clean and no lifting edges or marks. The brightwork is very good, and no bumps or bruises. Bottom cocking lever and upper wind-on both work and keeps film count.
I took some time to exercise the shutter and finally it started working (shutter blades opening/closing). I don't yet know about the timing on the shutter, but I just put a roll of film in, and going to carry it the next couple of days.
Anybody shooting Ricoh and what experience.
