Final got it to the Post office-

Enroute to next destination. Business travel slowed me a bit.

I believe it has arrived at my place. However, as luck would have it, I am away for work. There’s a chance I’ll be home this weekend, dependent on weather and a few other variables, but at the worst I’ll be back early next week. Taking my ‘one shot’ will be one of my top priorities! 📸

^ Looks like this has been a long "week." Just curious whether the camera is stuck again...

All done with the camera, it’s packed up and will be on its way to Ron today. Sorry for the delay, the timing couldn’t have been worse work-wise. Looking forward to seeing the results!

I received the camera and will try to turn it around quickly.

Where in this long thread are the instructions to use the camera? Looks like open the cover, advance the film to cock the shutter, focus to whatever is the subject distance and just leave the aperture on the green circle? Should the focusing ring be on the green circle (I assume that's the hyperfocal distance)?

Open the cover.
Leave the aperture ring on Auto - the green A. (The aperture settings only work if you are using a flash.)
Focus if you want or use the hyperfocal mark- green O.
Do NOT try to advance the film in case it already has been - just try and take a shot. If it goes ‘click’ that means you took a shot! If no click, advance and take a shot.
Wind on or not, just let the next person know to make things simpler.

FYI you cannot advance the film with the front cover closed.

A little video I just made so you can hear the sound of the shutter. Using my spare FF1 - yes I pretty much have two of everything...

The sort-of-helpful (but not very) camera manual is also available online: https://cameramanuals.org/ricoh_pdf/ricoh_ff-1.pdf

Seriously man- Helimat has been a pleasure to deal with- We all have lives and families etc. A week or two here and there isn't hurting this project.

Take a deep breath

eephoto updated that they're out of town until Wednesday. Heads up to the next in line that it may still be a couple weeks before they receive the camera.

Considering how far the camera has traveled to this point, the participants have done a good job of keeping the project moving along. The camera is in route to the thirtieth member on the list and continues to move along.

Thanks for the heads-up; I'm next in line after eephoto, and once I've taken my shot the camera will make its first overseas voyage, to France. Strasbourg, in fact, a place where I have actually been and I have a good friend who lives there. I wish I could hand-deliver it.

I have no travel plans for July so will be around and already know where I'm going to take that shot so hopefully should be able to turn it around quickly.
