Zeiss Ikon Ideal

Traduction de Manuel M

The Ideal is a model of camera initially designed by Huttig in 1908, and which continued its career going with the various mergers of manufacturers within ICA in 1909, then of Zeiss Ikon

Its manufacturing stopped in 1938.

This camera is a member of the family of the interchangeable lenses folding cameras, like the Voigtlander Bergheil and the Certo Certotrop.

Whereas the systems of locking/unlocking of the Bergheil and the Certotrop consisted of a kind of swiveling hook, that of this Ideal is a strip with notch which emerges by simple pressure, a little in the manner of the Contax rangefinder cameras (and Kiev thereafter)

Would the Ideal be thus perhaps at the origin of the locking of bayonet Contax Zeiss Ikon?

For the rest, it is a well made camera, of high-end, in the Zeiss Ikon tradition.

The denominations of the Ideal were linked with the format:

- Ideal 250/3: 6.5 × 9 cm
- Ideal 250/7: 9 × 12 cm
- Ideal 250/9: 10 × 15 cm
- Ideal 250/11: 13 × 18 cm
