Foca PF2b

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.


This camera took in 1947 the succession of Foca 2 stars. You will say to me that this one always has two stars! Yes, but on the first these two stars are painted, whereas on the PF2 bis, they are engraved.
The scarcity is not any more the same one, because the PF2 bis was manufactured during more than 10 years to thousands of specimens.

Compared to Foca 2 stars, the PF2 bis has a more powerful shutter (until the 1/1000 seconde). The lens 50 mm which are not called any more Foca, but OPLAR, is accompanied by a very complete range of lenses going from the wide lens of 28 mm to the small telephoto of 135mm.
