The circa-1988 Ricoh FF-9D is a high-quality 35mm film point-and-shoot camera with a very sharp 35mm f3.5 lens. This camera is a very solid performer that offers excellent image quality that's comparable to its better-known contemporaries like the Nikon One Touch, Olympus AF-1, or Canon Sure Shot Supreme. It's a very easy camera to use, but offers some nice advanced features for creative control: Panorama mode; Night Photography mode; TV mode; Continuous Shooting mode; Interval Shooting mode; and Multiple Exposure mode (see manual for further explanation). 

Note this is the 'D' version of the Ricoh FF-9 which adds an optional date/time imprinting option. The calendar only goes up to 2019 but you if you wish you can still add the time in hours and minutes to your photos.

This camera requires a CRP2 6-volt lithium battery (available as an option).

Condition notes
We film-tested this camera and it delivered sharp, correctly-exposed photos. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
