Chronology of cameras CPF 

CPF marketed at least box and folding cameras, albeit in a very discreet manner.

As for the folding cameras, they fit into the lineage of Siva, Star and SPO. They were quite conventional for their time, featuring automatic bellows extension, a "25 50 100 B T" shutter without cocking, a pivoting viewfinder with frame lines, and a folding frame viewfinder. They had two Kodak-style tripod sockets. The back was hinged with a practical and effective locking mechanism, and they used 120 film.



CPF Francia


The acronym CPF stands for "Concentration Photocinégraphique de France," a company located in Paris at 42 Rue de l'Échiquier.

According to the illustration on a photo paper box, it brought together two manufacturers, one in Paris and the other in the south of France, likely SPO from Carpentras. An advertisement published in Détective in 1935 indicates that it offered 100% French films and cameras.

It held at least the brands Tyrax and Francia.
