I am interested in the following features on XR-2s:
1. K-mount SLR body.
2. A internal curtain of viewfinder (a lever beside the eyepiece). You do not need a cover, which is easy to loose.
3. DoF preview and multiple exposure (unlock the ME lock, press the button both under the film advance lever before winding film)
4. A bright scale of shutter speed in the viewfinder.
|The green round button needs to be pressed in order to turn the shutter speed dial away from 'Auto' gear.|
The small window in the center of the plate under Ricoh label picks up the aperture size on the lens and shows it on the top of viewfinder.
|Battery is needed to operate the shutter. Without battery power, the shutter works only at 'X' on the speed dial, which is 1/90 s.|
It's elder brother, XR-2 introduced in 1977, can't work with the optional winder.
