    What Kodak Brownie model is this exactly?

    And where can I find some info on it to try and see if it works? I suspect it may not, however I can't even figure out how to open it!

    It's a Brownie Hawkeye and uses 127 film. You open it by lifting on the two tabs on the top and the back comes off. Here is a link to info about this camera...

    Don't remember the exact name, however, it was the first camera I ever used (family camera) and it took 620 6x6 photos.

    When you open, open carefully : old bakelite may be easily broken...

    Name is Brownie Flash.

    This is a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, one of the few 620 cameras that will work with 120 film provided you have a 620 spool for a takeup reel. There is enough room to just barely accept a 120 reel. Film with cheap plastic spools work best since they are often narrower. If one brand does fit then try another. Wind slowly and remember to cover the ruby window with a bit of black tape between exposures. Have fun.

    I have one of these and agree that it works well with 120 film. Again you do need the take up spool to be a 620 style. The winding is a little stiff but I have never had any problems. I use Kodak Plus-X and generally pull develop it at EI64 in Xtol. I have never used any tape over the red window an have never had any problems with fogged film.
