Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex Ib

The Ikoflex Ia was replaced in 1956 by two cameras, the Ikoflex Ib and Ic. The Ikoflex Ib was very much like an Ikoflex Ia with the addition of a folding shutter release the came out of the side of the camera and was more conveinent in use. It also had a redesigned focusing hood that opened and closed in one motion. The shutter was changed to a Prontor-SVS, and initially it was offered with either the 75/3.5 Tessar or a 75/3.5 Novar. In 1957 the Tessar option was discontinued and in 1958 the camera itself was discontinued.
