The focal plane Ticka camera was introduced in 1908, from the 1908 patent. The upgrade included a focusing Cooke f/6.5 lens and an adjustable focal-plane shutter with five speeds of 1/75, 1/100, 1/150, 1/200 and 1/400 and time. The original Ticka sold for 8s 6d (0.375GBP), the watch face Ticka was 10s 6d (0.525GBP) and the focal plane Ticka for 2 10s (2.50GBP). The watch face Ticka was still listed in 1914 but the focal plane Ticka had disappeared before and is hence the rarest of the production models.
