Week 120 - Ricoh Auto 66

Week 120, so I had to choose a 120 camera, and I haven't used one so far this year.
The Ricoh Auto 66 has a selenium meter, and uses a needle match system to set a combination of shutter speed and aperture, the user has no choice over this, only by using "B" or setting the shutter for flash, could you choose which aperture to use.
I've loaded it with a roll of Shanghai GP3 film, which has virtually illegible backing paper markings, not a problem for this camera which uses a frame counter rather than the red window.
