The Bessa 66 — also sometimes called "Baby Bessa", was a folding 120 rollfilm camera made in Germany by Voigtländer, introduced in 1938. It was one in a long series of Bessa cameras. There were two versions, the standard and a deluxe model with added sport-finder. A yellow 'Moment' filter was fitted to the front of the lens, which hinged out of the way when not required. The shutter was released by a lever mechanism fitted through the door, which folded out to below the winding knob when open.
