I told you all I was dusting off the Ricoh XR6 and aiming to put a film through it. Well when I bought it a couple of years ago I bought replacement batteries for it at the same time. Well I put them inn it today and yep you guessed it they are as dead as the proverbial parrot inn a Monty Python sketch. Annoying but not unexpected,, I work on the assumption if it can go wrong it will, and I have never been disappointed yet.Oh well Amazon it is then new battery is a must if I am ever going to use this great camera. I cant do anything until I get some power I am going to sort through my sock drawer while I wait for the postman, you never know I might find the misplaced 120 film I am looking for.
