Yes, the Ricoh 35 ZF is a small camera with subdued looks and simple features, but this nifty little shooter has shooting cred that speaks volumes despite its petite size. The Ricoh 35 ZF is an ideal camera for quick street photography – just whip it out and let its focus settings do the work for you.
The sleek build of the 35 ZF made it a popular choice among casual shooters during its release in the 1970s. Its silent leaf shutter proved to be perfect for incognito shooting while its famed Rikenon lens produced sharp photos on the get go. Also, the Ricoh 35 ZF sets the exposure for all your 35mm shots with its dependable light meter. Maybe great things do come in small packages.

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
