This kit includes:

  • Topcon Super DM 35mm SLR
  • RE GN Topcor 50mm f1.8


The Super Dm 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 a lens mount based on the Exacta mount. As a result, most Exacta lenses are compatible with the Topcon.

This camera is an extremely well build professional film cameras from the 60s. It is very rare but has amongst the best ergonomics of all cameras of that era. It has a removable prism-finder making waist level shooting possible. It is the perfect camera if you are looking for a super reliable mechanical camera and want something different.

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.
