    I have just purchased a Ricoh 500RF on Ebay and am eagerly awaiting delivery. I am curious as to what to expect from this camera and hopefully someone will have some tips for me. I intend to let my other half use it as an introduction to film, and in particular available light using Tri-X or Neopan.

    Regards, John.

    Yeah, Sears re-branded a boat load of different cameras over the years. Often times, you can get a hell of a deal by buying one with their name on it because many people don't remember a time when Sears actually sold anything.
