My half frame - Ricoh Auto half E

Hi, thought I'd post a few pics of my half frame. It has an interesting "automatic" film advance, cranking it loads some sort of spring tensioner so when the shutter is opened, it releases the film transport lock and advances the frame, or something like that. I even have the lens cap, original case and flash shoe accessory attachement.

Cool camera! Pretty rare to see one with the cap, case and flash bracket..

Quite a few manufacturers made half-frame cameras w/clockwork drives (Fuji, Canon, et al). Still a really cool idea..

Have you taken any shots w/it that you could post? I'm curious about that 25mm lens..

I used to have one one these. It was great for street photography. I lent it to my brother and he lost it. I still miss the little wonder.
