The Sears Easi-Load FC 600 is a rebadged version of a Ricoh 126C Automatic camera for Kodapak cartridges. It was produced in Japan by Ricoh for the Sears & Roebuck company in the U.S.A. as part of Sears' Easi-Load camera series for cartridged film. Unlike most other cameras of its class it has a quite mighty lens, a Rikenon 1:2.8/40mm, and a robust metal body. It has selenium meter controlled exposure and a spring motor for film advance.
This camera is very similar to the Sears Easi-Load Auto 600, differing only in the type of light meter and the indicated lens focal length.
