Ricoh FF3

If the 1970’s were all about fixed lens rangefinders then the early 1980s were all about the 35mm auto-focus point and shoot. When I say 35mm I don’t just mean the film size either it was such a common focal length that it seems every camera maker of the day had one. So please forgive me for finding the Ricoh FF-3 to be just another of the many, such as the Yashica T series or the Nikon L35AF, Pentax PC35AF, Canon AF35M, it seems it was best to make sure that people could tell from the name that it was a 35mm lens and had that new fanged auto-focus thing. If anything the Ricoh is physically¬†slightly wider than some of the other equivalent cameras of the day, but that’s not much of a difference.

    For all that it might be pretty generic, you still got some good stuff out of it. It didn’t seem to hold you back much.

    tree shadow shot is amazing

    Thank you, I like the challenge of using different cameras. I photograph for many reasons and I don’t take all of them too seriously.

    Thank you, I remember that I stood behind the tree so I wasn’t in it but you can’t even see the camera either, so it may have been overkill.
