We acquired a small number of these cameras in excellent condition (as well as a slightly larger amount of the Ricoh FF-10 Twin Super Date). These are all in the original boxes, packed into unopened original cases from the factory.
The Ricoh R-ex 70z is a true point-and-shoot from the last days before digital. It has all the automatic features you’d expect in a point-and-shoot from a major manufacturer, including:
- Automatic film loading.
- Automatic, motorized film advance after each shot, and auto-rewind when the roll is done.
- Built-in flash, that can be forced off, or forced on.
- Data back to imprint the date and time on each photo (this can be disabled, and there are 4 different date formats available)
- Slow-sync flash mode
- Back-light Exposure Compensation mode (a pre-set +1.5 EV exposure compensation setting)
The lens is a 35mm – 70mm zoom. The zoom works in the standard way, and you can zoom to points in between 35 and 70 (unlike the Ricoh FF-10 Twin Super Date).
The cameras come with a case (pictured) and a hand strap (not pictured – it’s still in the original plastic wrap in the box), and manual.
This camera take a single CR-2 battery (not included). These can be often be found at dollar stores (although not Dollarama in my experience), or purchased online.
