Ricoh Auto half I like it twice as much.

I wanted to shoot with my Ricoh Auto half a second time to make sure everything was working perfectly before I planned to take it on a trip. The trip never happened because well 2020. But just as with the first time around I was impressed. I mean if you look at that tiny little lens its hard to believe it can give you much of a result, but looks can be deceiving. Okay maybe I’ve set the image quality bar a little low for this camera. But what I like about it is as much about it being half frame and getting twice as many images out of a roll as it is the decent image quality itself. Actually on second thought this camera isn’t about the quality its more about the ease of use and the low barrier to the image making process. It makes taking film images seem less precious and opens up the choice in subjects.
