Zeiss Ikon Ikomatic A and Ikomatic F

The Ikomatic was Zeiss Ikon's initial entry into the instant-load 126 market. The Ikomatic F (10.0551) was a zone focus camera with no exposure control. It had an AG-1 flashbulb socket on top with a pop up reflector. It was available with a 42/8 Frontor or 42/8 Bilotar lens.

The Ikomatic A was similar, but more sophisticated. It had a built in selenium exposure meter and a hot shoe for electronic flash. It had a 45/6.3 Citar lens.

The Ikomatic F was introduced in 1964, the Ikomatic A in 1965. They were both discontinued in 1967.
