Spotted this one laying on a table and it took some examination to determine that it was a real camera. I paid the 10 bucks and took it home without knowing what I had really bought. My first impression was that it had the styling of a 1960 Mercury, oversized and lots of chrome. A little research revealed a quite sophistacated rangefinder camera. Released in 1960 by Ansco in the US it was made by Ricoh and sold in Japan as the Ricoh 999. I found some reference indicating the camera was designed by Ansco and they contracted Ricoh to make it but I have not been able to verify that. The camera had a selenium powered match needle exposure meter, a large and bright viewfinder, and interchangeable Xyton lenses. This camera came with the f1.9/50 Xyton lens but there was also available a f3.5/35, a f4/100, and a lower cost f2.5/50 Xytar lens. Each lens had a colored ring on the end of the lens that matched the colored brightline frame lines in the viewfinder. The 35mm lens was green, 50mm white, and 100mm was red. There is a small lever on the side near the name badge when pressed causes the name badge to flip up exposing the selenium cell for metering. That big silver hood ornament next to the lens is the shutter release. The frame counter is unique in that it is mounted on the back of the film door and the frame advance lever is on the bottom ala the Kodak Retinas. It uses the Seikosha SLV shutter. So here is a picture of the monster (Is that what the "M" stands for).
