    Hello, does any one know the size of filters for this camera, or where to get them. The camera model is Ricoh 35, and old rangefinder from the l950's. I don't have a photo at the moment.

    Are you able to post a photo of the camera? That might help in answering your question.

    If you can't make an image yourself, find one through Google search.

    Is the front of the lens threaded for a filter. The pictures in the manual (http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ricoh/ricoh_35/ricoh_35.pdf ) don't look like it is threaded for a filter. If it is threaded, measure the inside diameter of the threads and that should be close to an integer filter size in millimeters.

    27mm, might be easier to find a slip-on Series 5 adapter.

    If you found out the size:

    The german manufacturers Heliopan and B+W have a great choice of filter sizes (threaded and slip on).

    If your local photo shops offer used stuff too there might also be a box with filters.

    1950s cameras are wonderful , I have 1954 and 1957 Popular Photography almanacs and attention to humans is wonderful , I think US wanted to Show eastern bloc how they value the people. After 90s , there was no need to propaganda , all Money cut and süper groups , artists , photographers etc era died. I am seeing the us intelligence as vatican to support artists for propaganda. Now new fashion is to support and pay big Money to Chinese art , they say come , paint a shit we will pay great Money. They escape to US and end up as the Street prostitutes or drug sellers.
