D.F. Vasconcellos S.A. (owned by Decio Fernandes de Vasconcellos) was a camera maker in São Paolo, Brazil.[1] The company made cheap and simple cameras. Vasconcellos also produced an 'Optical Set'; a kit of optical components and mountings to allow students to study optics, and construct microscopes, telescopes etc. by assembling the elements.[2]

Cameras

  • Bieka (metal-bodied 6x9 cm box camera, as pictured here)[1]
  • Kapsa (plastic-bodied box camera for 6x9 or 4x6 cm on 120 or 620 film)[1]
  • Tuka (plastic camera for 127 film. McKeown compares it to the Ansco Cadet II and III, and suggests Vasconcellos may have acquired the Ansco moulds)[1]
  • Flika (plastic camera for 6x9 or 4.5x6 cm on 120 film)
