Ricoh TF-200

Jump to: navigation, search

The Ricoh TF-200 is an 80s compact camera with autofocus and a 38 mm lens, switchable to 65 mm by a ring around the lens. As on many early AF compacts, the finder has a focus zone indicator with five zones. An LCD on the top indicates number of exposures left, film loading and battery status. Like some Fuji compacts, the TF-200 loads the entire film roll into the camera, rolling it back into the cartridge frame by frame, thereby saving already exposed frames if the back is opened by accident. Because it reads the number of frames indicated by the DX code, it will only expose 36 pictures on a 36-picture roll, unlike many other compacts which may go as far as 39 or 40 frames. A date-back version, the TF-200D, was also available.
