Ricoh TF-900 35mm film camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Ricoh TF-900 (called the TF-500 in other countries) is a high quality auto-focus dual lens point-and-shoot 35mm camera from the late 1980s. You just have to click a button to switch between the 35mm f/2.8 wide-angle and 70mm f/5.6 tele lens. It's a fun camera to use and its dual lens arrangement offers sharper photos than comparable zoom lens models from the same era.

This camera requires a 6v CR-P2 lithium battery (available as an option). 

Condition notes
The camera was tested with a battery and film installed and performed well (the film was not developed). The camera's aesthetic condition is very good as well (see photos) with only minor wear on the body. The original case is included but is in very worn condition (see last photo).
