Did it have really to be done? This camera leaves a bitter taste to the FOCA addicts; this so prestigious mark had already shown that it could make at least good with Focasport of the 3rd generation, but from there to make of the 127 made of plastic… The camera was presented like “ 4 X 4 Camera. Clear with high magnification finder. Lens with program, variation continues speed and diaphragm according to illumination of the subject and the sensitivity of going film of the 1/30 to F: 11 to the 1/100 with F:32. setting of the illumination of the subject by symbols. Flash incorporated in the body with automatic setting. Easily interchangeable batteries. Reserve of two lamps. Device of blocking to avoid double exposure.” in the catalog Grenier-Natkin of 1966.
Obviously, it is nothing known as on the fact that the lens is a meniscus. When one is called Foca, all cannot be said, but one leads quickly to a fiasco.
