Copal CV-1 (1984)

The Copal CV-1. Shown but not demonstrated at Photokina 1984. Copal was a supplier of camera parts and not per se a camera manufacturer. The Copal CV-1 remains a mystery since they had no intentions of ever releasing a still camera under their own brand name. After 1984 Copal produced components for still video cameras as well as peripheral devices. They were one of the main suppliers of parts for the Casio VS-101.
