    Flipped lens? Nice. I love the dreamy shots. Maybe I'll flip the lens on my Hawkeye some day. At the moment the screws on the inside are immovable.
    I forgot to add; I also have the Brownie 110 Camera.

    No, but if you are into box cameras, check out this

    I too prefer to eat them instead of collect them.

    I have 42 Brownie cameras:

    • 10 - Baby Brownie
    • 6 - Baby Brownie Special
    • 1 - Brownie 2A Model C
    • 2 - Brownie Hawkeye
    • 3 - Brownie Hawkeye Flash
    • 2 - Brownie Holiday
    • 1 - Brownie Holiday Flash
    • 1 - Brownie Reflex
    • 1 - Brownie Scouts
    • 1 - Brownie Starlet
    • 4 - Brownie Target Six-16
    • 9 - Brownie Target Six-20
    • 1 - Brownie No. 3


    I've probably got another dozen or so cameras that I haven't even cataloged yet.
    I would like to take some of these Brownies out and shoot them but, like the old woman who lived in a shoe, I've got so many cameras I don't know what to do.
    So many cameras and so little time.

    My general plan is to keep the best example of each for display then choose a second example to take out and shoot. The rest I want to find homes for but it's hard to know where to look or who to ask.
    It's not necessarily about the money or trade value of the cameras but it's more about finding somebody who appreciates them for what they are. There are so few people who even understand what they are, let alone what they are worth.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Send them to BrowniesAreCool?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    LOL.
    You own the No. 3 Brownie? It's awesome, isn't it?
    The brownie holiday isn't that readily available in the UK.
    Come to think of it, neither is the Brownie Hawkeye, but I got the flash model for £5.
    I love the look of the brownie targets, but again, not very common at all in the UK. Ah well, off to eBay again!
    Hang on, is that the US-built Starlet, or the UK export?

    I still have my Dad's 1925 No. 2 black Brownie. Made in Canada in 1925.

    This is the Starlet I have.
    This isn't a picture of my camera but it's the same model.
    Mine is in similar condition. Maybe a hair bit nicer. Don't remember. It's been a while since I packed it away.
    (Everything is stored in military ammo boxes with packets of silica gel inside.)

    The No. 3 is still in working order, as far as I can tell but needs some cleanup.
    Again, haven't had the opportunity to fully assess it.

    Here's a question. If I have multiple examples of a camera, for example the "Hawkeye" and the "Hawkeye Flash" but I don't have room to keep both of them, do you suppose it's better to keep the flash model and find a new home for the standard one?

    If the right person comes along, I might be interested in selling or horse trading some of these (and other) cameras.

    Alas, I no longer have it, but I learned to do this with a Brownie Starflash. I do have a few other models in the "collection".

    I'm with Valerie, flipped lens Hawkeyes rock, but don't drop them like a rock or you will have bunch of Brownie pieces. Bill Barber
