Ricoh 35 EFS

Ricoh 35 EFS Konica built this camera as part of their long-running range finder and view finder compact camera series. Exposure is fully automatic and flash is built in.

Foam seals are the only known weakness of this camera so before you spool your first roll of film in, make sure to check the seals first. As for the rest, it seems to be a pretty sturdy camera.
