The Ricoh Super Shot 2.4 dates from 1966. It's a large and heavy camera for a compact. It is not a true viewfinder, nor is it a true rangefinder. In the viewfinder, the user sees a square, which varies in size while focusing. The idea behind this is that the head of the subject should be about the size of the square for a proper focus. This seems to work by all accounts but there is also a viewfinder three-zone focus display and a distance scale on the focusing ring. Exposure can be set to shutter speed priority automatic, or manual control. A battery operated viewfinder light meter needle shows ideal aperture at set shutter speed. The camera has a Rikenon 40mm f/2.4 lens and shutter speeds from 1/30 to 1/300 plus B (bulb). Film speed settings reach from ISO25 to ISO400. The camera also has a clockwork film transport. This and the shutter mechanism only works when the film is inside the camera. Extra options are a flash hot shoe, shutter release button lock, and a self-timer. Other features are a standard cable release socket in shutter release button, a coupled CdS metering cell above lens, 46mm screw thread filter size, manual flash exposure, X-sync hot shoe for all shutter speeds, a separate PC socket, film advance spring drive with a maximum of 12 exposures per wind, frame counter, rewind crank with release button in the center of the motor winder knob, viewfinder with Needle pointer aperture display with two types of zone focus displays, focusing from 3 feet to infinity, and five blade diaphragm stopping down to f/22. The Super Shot 2.4 weighs 652g and size is 133.5mm wide, 81mm high, and 69.5mm deep.
