Jump to: navigation, search

The Topcon Wink Mirror S is a 35mm film SLR camera manufactured by Tōkyō Kōgaku.

Originally bundled with the camera is a UV Topcor 53mm f/2 lens. The lens supports apertures of 22, 16, 11, 8, 5.6, 4, 2.8 and 2. Unlike the other Wink Mirror models, it is also interchangeable with a series of Topcon UV lenses. The shutter is manufactured by Seikosha based on the SLV model. It supports speeds of 1 to 1/500 plus a bulb mode.

The front of the prism has a large selenium based 'electric eye' for exposure metering. It is sensitive from 7 to 18 EV (ISO 100). It supports films speeds of 10 to 400 ASA (11 to 27 DIN). A shutter priority type mode is offered which works with speeds from 1/30 to 1/500, just set the aperture dial to the A setting. Fine focusing is aided by a micro-prism on the focusing screen.

In Germany this model was also available as the Porst Reflex S.

There were two other Topcon Wink models, the "Wink" and "Wink E" (Topconette), but unlike the "S" these had fixed lenses.
