The AF-60 is an autofocus point-and-shoot camera for 35mm film, introduced by Japanese manufacturer Ricoh in the late 80's. It is also sold by the name of AF-600 in some markets. A version with a databack was also available and it was sold as the AF-60D. The model named One Take AF looks identical to the AF-60, but it uses a slightly slower 3 element Ricoh lens rather than the 4 element Rikenon lens on the AF-60.
The AF-60 is basically a minor upgraded model with a new exterior design from the AF-50 released in 1985. They share almost the same specifications except that the manual film speed selector facility on the AF-50 was not incorporated in the AF-60.
