Foca Focasport I

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)
