Troubleshooting – How can I repair a stalled Ricoh FF-3AF trigger?

At least it seems that way. If you want to advance the film with this model, you will need to insert the film, close the door and press the shutter button once. Then it should continue until the counter has a & # 39; 1 & # 39; displays. When I turn on the camera by pushing back the lens cover, it automatically advances and takes pictures until my roll is done. You will hear a beep until you rewind the movie or close the lens again to turn it off. The opening of the top half, where the shutter is located, showed nothing unusual (at least it seemed normal, I do not know anything about cameras), and I could not open the bottom half, because a screw did not want to loosen. What can I do to fix the problem?

TO EDIT: When I bought this camera for the first time, I tried to use it before I put in a movie to make sure it worked. I do not remember if it began immediately to evolve, but it started to do so before I completely removed the battery corrosion and added film. It also sounds like it is constantly taking pictures while fast-forwarding and rewinding (the lens continues to try to turn in one direction, but at the same time it falls back into place with the noise).

EDIT 2: Without an answer, I tried to find the problem myself after removing the last screw. While looking at the parts to find the problem, I accidentally hit a part and now it's stuck somewhere inside. This probably needs to be sent to an experienced repair person or simply disposed of forever.

Software Protocol Definition / API Specification for the Ricoh Image Sync Feature

The Ricoh GR III camera can be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot (or as a Bluetooth connection). Connected to the camera, Android and iOS devices can download images from the camera or capture a live video stream and trigger the shutter remotely with Ricoh's "Image Sync" app.

I'm looking for a specification of the API or protocol description of how the app and the camera communicate with each other.

Recommended device – Ricoh Gr II vs Sony RX100 III

I think about these two, though they have different specifications, strengths and weaknesses and possibly a different buyer profile. Both are small enough for me, but the main dilemma besides the dust problem in Gr ii is the difference in sensor size.
Although I'm not an experienced photographer, I understand that a larger sensor is better in low light and low light conditions. However, the gr ii lens is slower than the rx100 iii and does not have IS. Therefore, the benefit of a larger sensor size is negated in these aspects?
The gr ii is known to have a sharp lens but so is the sony.
Any advice is appreciated.

Ricoh YF-20 Super (L-20 Date) movie rewinding screwy

The new Ricoh YF-20 I just bought confused me. When I insert the batteries, the camera does not stop rewinding the film even though I have not inserted a movie yet. First, I wondered if rewinding should stop after loading the movie, but after watching some videos online through the camera, it should not be rewound if no movie is loaded. I was wondering if there was a fix or anything to fix this cool new point and shoot I bought. Thank you in advance!

How can I fix a Ricoh FF-3 AF that does not stop rewinding / advancing?

I got it at a thrift store for two dollars, so no surprise if it just goes awry, but I want this thing to work.

This camera actually seemed to work when I first got it and tried to use it with no film inserted (it took a while for the batteries to be detected) and it seemed to be able to take pictures, rewind, close focus and activate the user interface in the viewfinder.

I still had problems with the battery the next day (corroded parts from the previous owner who had put the batteries in), so I tried a few tricks I found online and finally managed to get the camera up and running faster by placing sheet metal foil over the corroded parts.

A few days later, after I have a roll of film to try out the camera, I push the roll in and turn on the camera. The film is immediately rewound into the can (the rewind switch says "OFF") when it is turned on). I was finally able to remove the film, so I put it back in the camera and this time he made sure the switch was set in the opposite direction and closed the back. It was loaded well, but I did not want to continue until I closed the lens (one thing I forgot to mention: press the trigger to advance with the lens open, but it started by itself).

What is the problem and can it be fixed? If it helps to indicate a problem, the manual says that the shutter should not be used when the lens is closed, but I can still press it all the way down when I try.
