The Samoca 35 II can produce 36 pictures of 24x36mm on 35mm film using a fully corrected Anastigmat coated Ezumar f50 3.5 lens. The Vario type shutter has speeds of 1/25, 1/50, and 1/100 of a second plus B. It also has auto stop plus a frame indicator dial on the top, helicoid focusing, depth of field scale, and fixed focus marks. The camera has a manual shutter cocking button located at the top of the shutter & lens assembly plus a flash terminal on the front. The camera was produced under the Samoca Camera Co., LTD name by Sanei Sangyo K.K. in the 1950s and the company logo of AAA inside a triangle on the front confirms this. The three "A" are certainly inspired by the company name "Sanei", which can be phonetically understood as "three A" in Japanese. The Samoca brand name can be found up until 1962. Other features on the camera an accessory shoe, optical viewfinder, film advance knob on top, plunger shutter release socket, and 2 ΒΌ inch 20 thread tripod sockets on the bottom of the camera.
