The Belfoca was a popular folding camera for type No. 120 rollfilm, made by Belca. Made for 6x9cm images, It could be used with a mask for 6x6cm exposures. It had features that facilitated film load, exposure counting and closing the camera. The frame finder, the optional accessory brilliant finder and the shutter release button on top were further features to make this camera user-friendly. It was so popular that Feinmess in Freital started making camera lenses because other makers like Ludwig and Meyer had difficulties in supplying enough lenses. The camera was available with fast f4.5 lens or normal f6.3 lens. Shutter equipment was a multi-speed Tempor or Prontor shutter or a three-speed Binor or Junior shutter.
