The TF-500 is a 35mm compact camera released by Ricoh circa 1988. This camera is nearly identical in specifications to the dual focal length Ricoh RT-550 release one year later. The body and lens have been changed with the RT-500 model as it now features lenses with 35mm f/3.5 and a 70mm f/6.6. Also the flash no longer needs to pop-up.
