Way to go Ricoh!


Here's proof that you don't need a high end Leica before you get the urge to start pimping. Steve Lewis gave his 1960 Ricoh 500 the Cameraleather treatment and the result speaks for itself.

With its original covering in place, the Ricoh is a fairly nondescript little camera but the addition of some imitation crocodile skin transforms it into a wee stunner - the Kylie Minogue of cameras.

Steve has since off-loaded the camera on Ebay but obviously liked it enough to keep a pic handy which he kindly sent to me.
