Ricoh KR-5 Super II SLR Camera with Rikoh Rikenon P 28-100 Zoom Macro F4 Lens
This is an exceptionally nice, well-made, MF SLR camera.
The Super II, introduced in 1993, has a completely redesigned body, smaller and lighter than its predecessors.
Where the earlier KR-5 models had a limited range of shutter speeds, the Super II offered 1/2000 to 1 second, plus B; and flash sync at 1/125th. The Super II also replaced the mechanical match-needle exposure indicator with three LEDs. These are visible at the left of the viewfinder when the shutter is partly depressed: Green for correct exposure; or a red plus or minus, for over- and under-exposure, respectively. However the mechanical shutter remains fully usable even if the meter circuit lacks the power ordinarily provided by two LR44/SR44 1.5v batteries.
The shutter release of this model is locked until the advance lever is pulled outwards from the body. This is to avoid having the meter batteries run down due to accidental pressure on the shutter release.
KR-5 Super II is often recommended to students of (film) photography that they begin with a "back to basics" manual-focus/manual-exposure SLR, such as the venerable Pentax K1000.
