Description:

The YF-10 is a fixed-focus point-and-shoot camera introduced by Japanese manufacturer Ricoh in 1994. A version with a data-back was also available, and it was sold as the YF-10 Date. It is an extremely simple camera; it has a totally fixed-focus lens, a fixed shutter speed, and the fixed exposure setting. It incorporates the DX-code system, but it can only detect ISO 400 films, and all other films are rated as a ISO 100 film. The YF-10 was one of the simplest camera that Ricoh had ever released.

Review:

Reviewed By: Alan D.

Overall this is not a bad example of  the class. It runs neck and neck with the Olympus Supertrip optically and wiped the floor with the higher spec AM-100. It also comes with an additional film speed and a quirkier flash. However I’d still hang on to supertrip. The supertrip is usable without batteries, lighter, more compact and offers a choice of flash modes. If I had the chance -I’d go for a later model with the infinity focus mode like the YF-20 Super (aka L-20) but not the DX coding  like the YF-20N.  That said this is pretty good for a lomo option.
