I was playing around with this little Ricoh 500g I have - without a working meter and with a sticking rewind thing. The lens looks ok though - even when you run very old fogged HP5 though the camera then develop it in Foma Retro developer.
Tis a fine camera potentially although this one has too many issues to deal with. Not sure why I used it really.
On another note; the weather is nice here innit?

I don't use this type of film very much. It is colour don't you know and I don't usually 'do' colour. Only I did when the leaves turned brown, the sun shone and I thought it prudent to fill the Bronnie with Fuji slide film I had.
Mr Toots sent it off to be developed for me and it came back to my possession the other day. I can't seem to get a decent scan though - even using the fine Vuescan software I have. Anyone got any ideas please?

Yes we had some snow. A little bit. Enough to cover the roads and the fields albeit briefly. I took some snaps of it like you do - the Minolta 505si came out to play so I didn't have to think too much - although when I needed to think to do plus 2 stops for the snow, I was blowed if I could remember what to press. I altered the iso instead and found the requisite button for the stops later.
The sun was shining this day, the day after the day after the other day. It often does that after snow and a bit of a blow like what we have encountered recently.

I snapped up the occasion with the Petri7s using old 400 film of some sort pushed to 1600 and developed in Foma Retro developer. Works too.
