Jump to: navigation, search

The Ricoh 126-C Auto CdS is a viewfinder camera with fixed lens made in Taiwan by Ricoh from approximately 1969 to 1970. This camera was also sold in re-badged form as the Sears Easi-Load Auto 600.

This camera is nearly identical to the previous Ricoh 126C Automatic, but replaces that camera's selenium light meter with a more modern (for the time) CdS meter. As with the previous camera, film advance is automatic following exposure and is powered by a spring-loaded advance mechanism. The spring-loaded film advance mechanism is tensioned by winding a knob on the base of the camera.
