    Forte was a manufacturer of photographic film and paper products, based in Hungary. In 1949, they introduced the Optifort camera, available only to the Hungarian market, and only until 1950. It's made of cast aluminum and finished in glossy black lacquer.

    This example arrived at my doorstep directly from Budapest. I wonder - how many of these cameras are there in the USA?
