Ricoh FF-9 compact 35mm film camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Ricoh FF-9 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).

Options
If you opt for '+ battery' a CRP2 6 volt lithium battery will be installed. If you choose 'battery + film' you'll also receive a 24 exposure roll of Fujicolor 200 film along with the camera.

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries installed and a film roll running through the camera (the film was not developed). All functions are working correctly. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
