Ricoh Mirai - an 1988 modern AF film camera


Recommended Posts

<p>The magazine is Popular Photography, July 1993. Available online in Google books. A very thorough test of the IS-3 with an interesting sidebar on testing the lens on their bench testing equipment. Olympus provided a body-less lens and special electronics to handle it. It seems that Olympus felt they had to make the lens better than a comparable SLR lens in order to compete with the SLRs. And yes, the accessory lenses were very good, though I haven't experimented with them much to confirm that. <br>

I'm not sure how long the old electronics will last in these cameras, but they are fun to shoot while they last. Cheap enough to have a few spares around.</p>
