Getting back to the Brownies, I am wondering if someone could please provide some insight as to which models are known to have the best image quality? (assuming of course that some were better than others) I am looking forward to using all four of my Kodaks this summer for capturing my Fogo Island landscapes.
I became positively "hooked" on Brownies when my grandmother gave her lovely Duaflex I to me when I was just a young boy, some 40 years ago. I don't know what became of it; just disappeared one day. I recently purchased one identical to it and in perfect shape, both cosmetically and mechanically. A beautiful little camera.
Randy, if you are serious about parting with some of your Brownies, I would love to purchase from you. I am only interested in collecting Brownies that are in pristine condition, and yes, I would indeed be wanting to actually use them. If you have any in great shape that you may wish to part with, please get back to me by email or PM, and we can discuss it further.
I don't collect brownies but I have a Brownie Vecta from the early 1970s.
Attachment 54506This was my first camera when I was twelve and I used it until the Instamatics came out and the cost of photography fell drastically. I recently put of roll of 127 film from EFKE through it - currently waiting for the film to come back from the developers.
I don't collect them but I have two box models that I've adapted to wet plate.
No but I collect their mothers.....:p
Over here Brownie's are pastries... A new-german term that recently came over from the US.
Aside of camera collectors no-one will think of cameras. And so far I only saw 1 Kodak Brownie at flea-markets. And that encounter was not even in Germany, but in Belgium.
I just won my 6th... YAYYYYY!! Which is actually like my 12th considering all the others that I've sold in recent months! LOL
I don't collect them, but I have a No. 3 Brownie box (3 f-stops, 2 shutter speeds), still working. It took great pictures on 122 film when you could still get it. Can't beat a 3-1/4 x 4-1/4 in. negative.
I have a box of them. I think there are 4 or 5 that I got from my Uncle's estate. Some appear to work, others, well, not so well. I should see if I can get a spool and give a few of them a go.
