I have been working a lot of overtime and we are having a contractor tearing out our kitchen and replacing the floor, cabinets and counter tops. Little time left for photography and social media. On the bright side I discovered a new website for cameras. Goodwill has a web site www.shopgoodwill.com/Default.a… where they sell donated items.
I bought a 35mm camera Ricoh “35” for $6.50 plus shipping. You need to read the shipping amount before you bid, some of the places charge a lot for shipping, some are quite reasonable. Service and shipping also tend to be slow. The descriptions and pictures are usually poor and everything is sold as is no returns. It has a one star plus rating on reviews. But they seem to get a lot of bids.
The ROICH “35” is a all mechanical camera that is heavy and has limited shutter speeds. It works well and fits in my hand. It was made in 1955. Instead of having a winding lever on top right it has a winding lever on bottom left that works quite well. The back comes off for loading film. I ran a short roll through it and am posting a couple of pictures to show what it can do.
