    Does anyone else collect Brownies?

    Does anyone else include any Kodak Brownies in their collection? If so, do you shoot with them? They're lovely cameras really. Amazing to think that these little cardboard/metal boxes still take these wonderful photos. And there's always the Folding Brownies.

    I have a Brownie Target Six-20 box camera my parents gave me new in 1949 or 1950 -- and it still works. Must have been a good investment!

    There is a collection of Brownies, and all of the turn of last century photo advertising ephemera and even small doll figurines, that goes on display intermittently at different Toronto area spring camera shows from year to year.

    The shows in question are run by the Photographical Historical Society of Canada.
    They have a web site, PHCS.ca.
    On there is a reasonable back archive of their old newsletters.
    I know they ran an article on the collector sometime in the last few years. He has quite a ton of stuff Brownie related.
    my real name, imagine that.

    i use and collect box cameras of all types.
    and i have been known to purchase, refurbish and sell
    falling plate box cameras too.

    i would rather use a box camera than anything else to be honest .. they are freeing .

    I have several. My favorite is a Hawkeye with a flipped lens.
