Manufacturer: Ricoh Company, Tokyo, Japan

Production period: +/- 1975

For the exposure control a button cell is required (type MR44 / PX675, discontinued). The photo cell is located very close to the lens and within the filter thread. Therefore no further exposure compensation is necessary when filters are used.
