Topcon 100

June 28, 2010 4:53 am | Surveying Equipment

will any camera lens fit any camera?

I have a 35mm camera with a few lenses that someone recently gave to me, but the camera body is broken (the shutter doesn't work at all) and the repair store said they have no parts for it because it's such an old camera.

it's a beseler topcon auto 100.

could I just buy a new camera and use the lenses, or would I have to buy a new camera body and lens?

Topcon was a very good camera in its day (middle to late sixties), but like every SLR camera, the lens mounting feature was different for each camera brand.

You will either have to have it repaired or buy a used one.

craigslist sometimes have them for sale Sample listing: http://poconos.craigslist.org/pho/508327469.html

IF you cannot find a good used Topcon body, then just forget about it and buy a nice used Nikon or Canon SLR with lens for under $200 on craigslist

After reading the below link I certainly would not bother trying to adapt the Topcon lenses to anything ... just sell them to someone who has a Topcon system already and use the money to buy something more standard ... Nikon or Canon
