The camera was released in 1982. It has automatic exposure controlled by a CdS cell powered by a PX675 button battery. The original PX675 had mercury in it and should be replaced by the PX76 or the MR44. The camera also has a Ricoh Color Rikenon 40mm 1: 2.8. lens, Shutter from 1 / 500th to 1 / 8th of a second plus bulb, built in time delay lever, frame counter, shutter locking lever, battery check button, film speed dial (on the front of the lens), distance scale ring (on the lens), shutter speed ring (on the base of the lens), auto/manual dial, film rewind fold down crank handle (also the pull-up back lock), two conductor Hot shoe, right hand film advance lever (on the top), optical viewfinder, ¼” 20 thread tripod socket, film rewind release button (on the bottom), film winder coupler for attaching a electric film drive unit, and a film advance check window next to the hot shoe. The camera also has an interesting ME (Multi-Exposure) switch on the front of the camera that will reset the shutter without advancing the film. By holding down the red locking button on the slide switch and sliding the switch to its full position you reload the shutter for the rare intentional double exposure.
