Ricoh Singlex TLS 35mm SLR Film Camera with 55mm f2.8 Lens

Ricoh Singlex TLS 35mm SLR Film Camera with Auto Rikenon 55mm f2.8 lens

All cameras come with a 6-month warranty.


This kit includes:

  • Ricoh Singlex TLS film camera body 
  • Auto Rikenon 55mm f2.8 lens


The Ricoh Singlex TLS is a fully mechanical camera. This means it does not require batteries to operate the shutter. The battery is only used the power the camera’s light meter.

It uses M-42 screw mount lenses.

The Singlex TLS is an iconic all-metal, all-manual film camera. It's built like a tank and virtually indestructible. It also has one of the most minimalist designs we've seen in an SLR. The versatile M-42 lens mount gives you access to plenty of affordable, good quality glass. This is the perfect no-nonsense camera for those who value reliability.

Due to the age of this camera and the nature of old light meters we can’t guarantee that the light meter still works. This isn’t an issue as the camera will function perfectly without batteries. To meter a scene before taking a picture we recommend using an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone. Alternatively you can use the foolproof sunny-16 rule.
