old_cameras_old_man Using 620 size film, the Brownie Flashmite 20 produces 2 1/4" square negatives. It is has the same styling as the Starmite, but with a larger body for the larger film size. Below the view finder it is identical to the Brownie Twin 20. The shutter is single speed, but there are f stops to adjust for film or light conditions. The camera is focused by a ring on the lens with detentes for close-ups, groups, and scenes. The Flashmite 20 was available from 1960 to 1965. #vintagecamera #oldcamera #oldkodak # oldbrownie #cameracollection #filmcamera #oldschoolcamera 1w

old_cameras_old_man What stands out on the Brownie Twin 20 is two view finders, one eye level direct optical and the other a brilliant reflex finder. A 620 film camera with standard 2 1/4 square image, it has a single speed rotary shutter and aperture adjustment for film type. The lens is f/11 meniscus. The camera is focused by a ring on the lens with detentes for close-ups, groups, and scenes. There are pin and screw flash contacts on the side. #vintagecamera #oldcamera #oldkodak # oldbrownie #cameracollection #filmcamera #oldschoolcamera 2w

old_cameras_old_man This 55 year old Brownie Starmite has seen better days. The reflective coating on the flash reflector (which takes AG1bulbs) has begun to disappear. The lighter of the two shades of grey has yellowed. This 127 film camera takes the standard 1 5/8" square photo. It has an f/11 fixed focus lens and a single speed rotary shutter. This $11 camera in 1963 would be $88 today. I paid $4. The Starmite was discontinued in 1963. #vintagecamera #oldcamera #oldkodak # oldbrownie #cameracollection #filmcamera #oldschoolcamera 2w

old_cameras_old_man From 1961, the Brownie Starmatic II has a two-tone grey body with pin-and-screw flash terminals on the side. The lens is an f/8 Kodar, the shutter is rotary and a photocell adjust the aperture. It uses the almost extinct 127 film and produces images 1 5/8" square. The camera was discontinued in 1963. #vintagecamera #oldcamera #oldkodak # oldbrownie #cameracollection #filmcamera #oldschoolcamera 2w
  •   adambodenphotography I actually have this one, but have never used it since I can't find the film. 2w
  •   old_cameras_old_man @adambodenphotography I have not shot with any of my 127 cameras and I have a lot of them. The film is the main issue. If I want to reach back to this era I have plenty of 35mm cameras to shoot. 2w
  •   dianaschnuth I was about to say that Efke film is available... But it's not anymore?! Glad I had some in my freezer, but so disappointed that some of my favorite old cameras are basically decorations now. Including my Starmatic. 2w
  •   dianaschnuth BTW, expensive but available. Bluefire Murano (color), Bluefire Pan (b/w), ReraPan (b/w), all about $12 per roll everywhere I've found online. 2w
  •   old_cameras_old_man B&H were the last selling Efke, but show it as discontinued. What is the processing for Bluefire? @dianaschnuth 2w
  •   dianaschnuth I found info at frugalphotographer.com -- Bluefire Murano is C-41, but the Pan is true b/w and uses b/w chemistry. 2w
  •   dianaschnuth Also, I'm the longest-running member of the Starmatic Memories group on Flickr (and mod by default, since the original owner disappeared). Check it out if you're interested in seeing what this little camera can do! 2w
  •   finamarketa Love your collection I love old camera too I try to collected them by Purchased through eBay but my problem is shipping cost are very hight T_T 12h

old_cameras_old_man This Six-20 Brownie Junior was introduced in early 1934 as was the Six-16 Brownie. Both cameras have a single speed and time, and a slide to provide a smaller aperture in bright sun conditions. The shutters are rotary, the lens meniscus, and there are separate view finders for portrait and landscape. Both cameras were discontinued in late 1942. The Six-20 produced 2 1/4 x 3 1/4" images on 620 film. The Six-16 produced 2 1/2 x 4 1/4" images on 616 film. #oldcamera #vintagecamera #oldkodak #browniecamera #filmcamera 3w

old_cameras_old_man Engineer once and sell twice, thrice. From left to right: Brownie Chiquita, Brownie Holiday Flash, Brownie Bullet. Covering 1953 through 1964, these simple cameras represent a single engineering effort, and multiple faceplates and ad copy. A single speed rotary shutter is combined with a single element plastic lens, and no adjustments necessary. It retained the spirit of "you push the button and we do the rest". It would be more than twenty years before someone came up its the euphemism "focus free" for cameras without adjustable lenses. #vintagecamera #oldcamera #cameracollector #cameracollection #filmcamera #oldschoolcamera #oldkodak 3w

old_cameras_old_man The Kodak Junior Six-20 (as in 620 film) is a self erecting folder that was produced from 1935 - 1939. This camera was the first variant from 1935 - 1937. It has a Kodon No. 0 shutter with speeds of 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 plus B and T. It has a Kodak Anastigmat 100mm f6.3 lens which can be stopped down to f32. It has a rotating reflex finder mounted to the lens board and a flip finder mounted on the side of the body. #vintagecamera #oldcamera #antiquecamera #vintagekodak #oldkodak #antiquekodak #filmcamera 1mon
