The Ricoh KR-10 Super is a quality 35mm SLR camera from the 1980s that offers both aperture priority auto-exposure and metered manual exposure modes. The LCD metering in the viewfinder is very and the camera offers a wide film speed support from ISO 12 to ISO 3200. 

The included lens is a fast and sharp Rikenon 50mm f1.7. The camera uses the same lens mount (K-mount) as Pentax cameras like the K1000 and ME and it's an excellent alternative to these better known cameras. 

The KR-10 Super requires two 357 silver oxide or LR44 alkaline batteries for operation (the 357 are available as an add-on).

Condition notes
The camera and included lens are in very good condition. We tested this camera and lens combo with film and it delivered correctly exposed and sharp images. We confirmed its shutter speeds to be accurate with a shutter tester. The original camera manual is included.
