    The shutter in the Baby Brownie Special that I have, still works. But when I saw the online prices for 127 film...

    Good buy! There seems to be a trend of rising prices for older cameras these days on sites like eBay, Etsy, and even Craigslist. I have seen many simple, older, "junk" cameras that used to command prices of no more than $5, going for more like $50! It is truly amazing to see even very ubiquitous models such as the Brownie Hawkeye fetching high prices. Maybe it is a good thing in a way that they are becoming more desireable, but it is certainly frustrating when you're actually in the market for one!

    I wont pay more than $15 for one. These things are usually so dirty and beaten that $15 for a nice, clean, good condition one I think is fair. With that said, I've only paid $15 once, and it was for my 1949 mint condition metal advance knob Brownie without so much as a single scuff, and it had a roll of exposed 620 film in it that I plan on getting developed soon.

    I'm working on trying to find a boxed set with a metal knobbed hawkeye, the flash holder, all original blue flashbulbs and the original everyready batteries. There is one on Ebay right now for $150 but I've seen some go for as low as $25. When I find that right one I'll jump on it.

    I've got one of these. Love it. Easy to put together and all works. Lovely snaps too.
    Sorry Thomas!

    I have 4 of these along with other DIY as I love building cameras, learn so much!
    They are sturdy and takes awesome shots!

    Maybe you got a dud one since all mine had all the right screws.


    Latest toy camera well gear is the Diana F with the ringflash and instant back. Fun stuff and better than instax IMO

    I wonder if there would be enough demand for a Holga that takes 127 film, 16 exposures (two red windows on the back)...
