  • What is the origin of the name “TOPCON”?

    In around 1953, we asked internally for the name of the newly developed camera and the name “TOPCON” was chosen. Therefore the name was adopted in TOPCON 35 A, our 35 mm camera, released in November 1953. After that, it was used for a long time not only as a brand name for cameras but also for the Company products. In April 1989, the Company name was changed to “Topcon Corporation” in line with the brand name.
    TOPCON is said to be based on the English name of the former company name, Tokyo Optical Company.
