Prasadsu,

any camera store will have a flash for your KR5. buy a non dedicated type that fits on the hot shoe.
or try ebay for a used one.

My Ricoh kr-5sv's rewind button is still pressed in after i rewound andd took out the film. how do i get it to pop out again?


The rewind button will usually pop out once you turn your film advance lever. In order for you to be completely familiar with your camera, here's a link to a user's guide in pdf format:

Hope this helps.

Hi i brought ricoh kr5 i need to get flash for it where can i get that and i found at bottom of camera space for battries do i have to putbatteries to use it thanks


The KR-5 Super II is totally reliant on batteries in order to function. Use two SR-44 cells fitted with the + side towards the cover. LR-44's also work but will give slightly inaccurate meter readings. If you use slide film then avoid using LR-44's but if you use print film it's not really a problem.

The flash is just any standard, non-dedicated, automatic or manual flashgun. There are millions of them around, perfectly good and unused, so there's no need to pay for one. Just ask on your local FreeCycle or Freegle groups.

Can the 35mm SLR Ricoh Kr-5 Super II camera still work with the batteries dead?


Straightforward answer: no. Everything needs power to work except for the self timer, but even that won't fire the shutter without battery power.

Iam looking to buy a flash for ricoh KR super2


You don't need anything special. Just buy a flash with a hot shoe.

Want to buy a flash


Sunil, there's a huge array of flashes that will suit that camera.
What you have is one of the old-faithfuls of the camera world. Not over-the-top glamerous bits, just basic necessary features that work well, and that camera will go for a long long time.
The hotshoe, the 'slide' on the top of the camera that accommodates the flash, is NOT a 'dedicated' shoe which means there is no auto or specific links between the flash and the camera.
You need to talk to someone over the counter because models of flashes are changing every day and I do not keep up to cover them all.
What I would be asking for is firstly, a hotshoe flash, then, an auto flash (this means the flash itself will meter the light output and adjust itself), then you want to buy a flash for its power output (guide number) don't waste your money on useless features for that camera, put the money into to flashes power, higher the guide number the better (GN20 is low, GN30 is good, GN40-45 is very high and likely a huge flash).
So, and auto flash, not dedicated, no fancy features, good GN (high 20s-mid 30s)
Also, don't buy brand names (ricoh, canon, nikon), pointless in this case. Look for generics, Metz, Sun, Sigma etc.

Ricoh kr5 super light meter does not work


About the only thing you can do is clean the batt. cover and contacts in batt. holder,use a pencil eraser, be careful with the contacts in holder. There are no parts avail. for this model. However this is a rugged camera and you could buy a hand held light meter.

Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II Shutter will not activate.


I doubt you still need help with this considering it's over 8 months later... but the same thing has been happening to me lately, I've had to force the self timer to start by giving it a little push, once it gets going it starts to work normally again.
