but I would like you to understand

Thank you

This time, we would like to introduce a film compact camera series with auto focus zoom.
We introduce a Ricoh film compact camera released in 1992.

RICOH MYPORT ZOOM mini (Reference product)


This is a black color camera made of plastic.
It was a small and lightweight camera at the time of its release.

The flash and viewfinder, especially the light-receiving window, are designed to resemble the eyes of a living creature.

The lens is a zoom lens that supports 38-60 mm and can also be used for macro photography.

On the top face are the gray-colored self-timer and telephoto control switches, and the shutter release button.
Then there is an LCD section with a function display and a selection button.

Rear view.
The slide switches for opening and closing the lens and power are located next to the viewfinder.
Then there are pilot lights for auto focus and flash, and the LCD panel for the date.

Slide the viewfinder cover to turn it on and the viewfinder comes out ready to shoot.
It also has autofocus and flash sign lamps.

On the bottom, there is a film rewind button and a receiving screw for a tripod.

In this issue, we introduced a compact camera with autofocus and zoom function from Ricoh released in 1992.

At the time of its release, this camera was the world’s smallest camera with a zoom function.
Since Ricoh was originally a manufacturer with an established reputation for half cameras, it was a film camera that focused on miniaturization.

We will continue to introduce more unique film cameras in the future!
