The Ricoh “35”, manufactured starting in 1955 is uniquely beautiful coupled-rangefinder 35mm camera. The most unique feature is the bottom mounted film advance lever that allows for rapid shot taking.

From the front the “35” is visually similar to slightly earlier and much lower-end viewfinder Ricolet.
