An online guide to collectable cameras and related
Zeiss Ikon Liliput
Ernemann brought with them into the merger a line of small, simple strut folding plate cameras, the
Liliput. They were carried under the Zeiss name until around 1928, when they were dropped. They
were sold in two sizes, the 4.5 x 6cm and 6.5 x 9cm sizes. It appears they may not have even been
given Zeiss catalog numbers, and represent sale of stock previous to the Zeiss Ikon merger. They were
leather covered, had fold up simple metal frame finders, and were fitted with fixed focus f/12.5 lenses in
Time and Instant type shutters.
