    Aloha:

    I just picked up a Bebe 342/3 w/ Jena 10,5cm/3.5 w/ yellow slip-on filter, 120 roll film back, 3 cut film holders, all in original Zeiss case. The lens reads in feet and is stamped under the groundglass "For China". I just replaced the bellows and am beginning to refininsh it. Can anyone lead me to some historical information on this camera? There seems to be a lack of it around.

    Mahalo,

    Thanks for that lead. It's a start. In following up on it, I found a collector's site and merely lists the item, though does not have one for display. There are a couple other pages though no in-depth info.
