The Ikonette 35 is a 35mm viewfinder camera made by Zeiss Ikon in Germany, c.1958-60. It had the Zeiss catalog number 500/24.

The Ikonette has an unusual grey curved body made of metal and plastic[1] with a large front-mounted combined shutter release and film advance lever. The top was flat, featuring only a recessed accessory shoe hidden by a sprung cover, and a cable release socket. Film was rewound by a recessed knob at the user's left side.

Reportedly, Zeiss recalled and destroyed many Ikonettes due to light leaks[2]. There are also reports of the camera being marketed for women.

There were earlier models using the Ikonette name, using roll film.
