Zeiss Ikon Bebe

The Bebe was a continuation of the ICA line of strut folding plate cameras. It was available in two sizes. The 342 was 4.5x6cm, and was fitted with either the 75/4.5 Tessar or 75/4.5 Triotar in dial set Compur, or later the 75/3.5 Tessar in rim set Compur.

The Bebe 342/3 was for 6.5x9cm, and was fitted with 105/4.5 or 105/3.5 Tessar lenses. Both cameras were apparently discontinued in the early 1930's.
