Ica Maximar 207/1, Nixe 595, Ideal 111 and Toska 215

In 1909, the four camera makers Hüttig AG in Dresden, Kamerawerk Dr. Krügener in Frankfurt/M, Wünsche AG in Reick near Dresden and Carl Zeiss Palmos AG in Jena joined forces to become the Internationale Camera A.-G. (ICA) in Dresden. Hüttig, one of the oldest camera makers was founded in 1862. Originally, the company logo was a five-pointed star. Later this was changed to a light-bearing angel. ICA produced a variety of cameras. Of course some camera lines of the founding companies were continued. The plate cameras Sirene 135 and Ideal are common.

In 1926, ICA was one of the name-giving partners in Zeiss-Ikon. The others were Ernemann, also in Dresden, Goerz and Contessa-Nettel.
