So, you may recall my saying recently that another camera was on the way. That was a 1958 Ricoh Diacord L (not to be confused with the Diacord G, which I’ve CLA’d, but it has fungus between the rear lens elements – you can judge whether or not that’s a significant detriment, as almost all of the shots I posted over the past two weeks came from that camera). After a weekend of disassembling the shutter, cleaning all of the parts, re-lubricating and reassembly, accidentally spilling naptha back in the now-cleaned shutter, taking it apart AGAIN, cleaning and re-lubricating… well, this was the “focus test” roll.
Results: this camera is phenomenal. I love it, and can’t wait to shoot more with it.
Shot on Acros 100.
