Chronology of cameras Foca 
History of the brand Foca New window

Traduction d'Olivier Ciesielski.


This is the first and most common version of the FocaSport brand. You could think that it is a unique one however they are lots of variations.

First one is based on the shutter. You can find some FocaSport I with a shutter made by Crouzet and you will need to carefully look at the shutter to see this difference:  the speed and aperture numbers are put in a way that the “B” of exposure is set on the left.

Another one is trickier to find. You will need to open the camera and look for a film guide to identify which variant it is (look at the right). The idea here is to help and drive the film on a easier way to the receiving reel. It means that the film sticker is also changed.

The lens is always a 45 mm with an aperture of 3.5 (Neoplar)
