The Ricoh AF-5 was a point and shoot autofocus compact camera for 35mm film with integral flash and autofocus, manufactured by Ricoh. It's a little bulkier than its rivals from Canon (Sure Shot) and Nikon (L35AF), but is capable of similar results. The lens produces particularly contrasty photos in good light.
