Belca-Werk firm was renamed Balda firm in 1951.

After the WW2, the Dresden firm Balda stayed in east Germany and its name changed to Belca-Werk in 1951. It continued for some time to produce folders, and was absorbed into VEB Kamera-Werke Niedersedlitz in 1957. From that time Belfoca I, Belfoca II, Belmira and Beltica II cameras made by Welta, which was a part of VEB-camera-Werke Niedersedlitz.
