The Baby Speed was made by Newman & Guardia. There are minor differences between models; the finish of the leather is sometimes smooth sometimes pebble finish, the script on the lens changes from large capital letters to smaller script. An f5.6 9" Dallon telephoto was available.

The camera is small and neatly made with a clean, uncluttered, appearance. It did not, though, prove very successful. The shutter is similar to that used on the N&G Folding Reflex.

The focusing magnifiers were introduced in 1929.
