O.P.L. Foca PF2 Mod 1
The Foca camera is a French copy of the Leica screw cameras from that time. Of this model, the Foca PF2 Model 1, only 1000 cameras were produced. The serial number 11.019 is engraved on the inside. This is a wanted Foca amongst collectors.
The camera covering is fully intact. On the spots where the copper screws are, the covering has come up a little. There is also a hollow slit on the front. See pictures. The metal parts of this camera are in fairly good condition. No dents. Some little scratches on the front plate. Light corrosion spots on the bottom plate. See pictures. Camera release button works well. We do not give any guarantees on the shutter speeds. The image of the viewfinder is reasonably bright. The back closes well. Inside neat. Including film spool.
De Foca 3.5 f=5cm lens unfolds smoothly, as it should. Focuses smoothly. Setting the lens opening runs a little stiff. Diaphragm good. Glass is scratch free. Reasonably clear. Somewhat hazy, which is normal for a lens this age.
All and all, this “Optics and Precision de Levallois” Foca PF2 Mod 1 makes an interesting addition to your collection.
