The Ricoh L-20 is a simple compact 35mm point-and-shoot film camera from the early 1990s. It features a moderately wide 35mm f4.5 lens.

This camera doesn't automatically set the film speed, rather, you select the film speed by a switch on the front. Advanced shooters can use the film speed switch for exposure compensation in unusual lighting situations.

This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). The camera is in good cosmetic condition (see photos) with the most noteworthy flaw being some scuffs on the viewfinder (doesn't affect photos but makes the viewfinder less crisp).
