Ricoh Mirai a modern AF film camera
Created in 1988 by Ricoh, the Mirai 105 is a 35mm autofocus camera equipped with a 38 to 105 mm auto zoom lens. Extremely compact and easy to use, this camera features and LCD display and a parallax-minimizing front viewfinder. Another interesting and quirky-looking autofocus SLR camera, the Ricoh Mirai was also introduced in the late 1980s and marketed as a complete SLR system in a small package. Not surprisingly, since they partnered with Ricoh, Olympus also included it in their roster of cameras, and called it Olympus AZ-4. It was nearly identical with the Ricoh Mirai, only without a remote control socket and uses different batteries.
