The shutter in the Baby Brownie Special that I have, still works. But when I saw the online prices for 127 film... :pouty:
good night already.... I just won a Polaroid 100 for $10. I sure hope we rent a big house in Houston..... I think I have an issue.
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.
Latest toy camera purchase:
Holga 135 Panoramic
kodak X-15 Instamatic (126)
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)... :unsure:
