In 1914 Newman and Guardia introduced two new models of Sibyl camera, the New Special Sibyl, a 3½ x 2½ inch (6½ x 9cm.) cameras and the quarter-plate version of the same camera, the New Ideal Sibyl. These were designed to replace the Sibyl Pocket cameras in the same plate sizes. The firm announced that the Ordinary, Special and Imperial Sibyls would be withdrawn from sale.
These new models were redesigned and were slightly smaller in size but 'with many valuable additions and new features'. These included a built-in lens hood, depth of field scale, markings for darkslide, film pack or changing box focussing, and the folding viewing lens closing automatically when the camera was closed. This was also linked to the lens. A 0 second shutter speed was also provided. The camera sold for £19.
