Seroa Mecaflex

Traduction de Dan Fromm.

After production in Germany by Metz stopped in 1958, the Mecaflex resurfaced in Monaco thanks to the firm S.E.R.O.A. (Optical and Acoustic Research & Development Corporation).

One notes that the new manufacturer retained the M of Metz, previous commercial distributor, in its logo.  All the same, the lens, although a Benoist Berthiot, is engraved “Lic Kilfitt,” en reference to the designer and original maker.

It is the only French 24 x 24 reflex (almost, because Monegasque).  The shutter speeds are B, 1, … , 1/250.

The interchangeable Benoist Berthiot lens is 40/2.8.  It is s/n 96354.  It has four elements, is coated.  The alternative was a three element 40/3.5.
