Super Ricohflex Anyone?

Discussion in 'Film Forum' started by Jeff Fillmore, Aug 18, 2009.

  1. Anyone familiar with a Super Ricohflex? I have been really wanting to try a camera with a top viewfinder and picked one of these up on Ebay for $20. Supposedly in working condition with the 35mm back and leather case.

    I had one of those cameras in the early 1960's. I didn't have the 35mm back, it was a blast to use. I think I paid about $25 for it new, can't remember, but I didn't have much money then. Enjoy your new find. :smile:

    That looks GREAT Jeff! A TLR is a really fun type of camera to use, and they are impressive to be shot with as well. They look like a pair of sideways eyes. Here is an old article about shooting with one:

  4. I bought one off the bay two weeks ago, and will be sending it off
    to get completely pimped. I have a Ricohflex Dia L that is a good TLR
    with Tessar-clone lens. There's a flickr group for Ricohflex and the shots
    I seem to like most are with the Super Ricohflexes with triplet lens.
