    Do you mean a brownie Starmite?

    Hello All

    I have my late Mother' six-20 Brownie Jr. I am in my mid 70's and it is the camera she used to take my baby pictures.

    The shutter still works but the viewfinders are not usable.

    I have a Brownie Hawkeye Flash but I don't like the flipped lens craze. To me this is similar to drilling an off-center hole in an LP just to get a laugh at the oblong sound.

    I would hope that people that do flip the lens put it back to normal when they tire of the novelty.

    A future owner may not realize what's wrong and, after seeing their first pictures, might throw the camera away altogether.

    Howard, I own a Six-20 Brownie Junior. It's likely that your viewfinders are caked in dust and dirt. You can clean them by simply popping the front plate of the camera off (may require some wriggling and prying with a small screwdriver), taking a cotton swab with some cleaning stuff (water will do though) and wipe them clean. They should then be very clear.

    Ah, I see that the Starlet is the Uk export. A rebadged Brownie 127.

    I have a Baby Brownie Special (from 1942) here, found in my grandfather's attic when I was a child. Still works today.

    I've bought two more since my last post, so I'm now up to 7 Hawkeyes!

    There are better when baked with a lid of marijuana. Even better with two lids.

    I do not collect them. Instead I eat them. That said I just bought one Brownie Hawkeye flash model since it was my first camera. I have no plans in using it.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
