A collection of equipment kindly donated to us for display at our studio and online.
This is one of our favorites – the Kodak Box Brownie. Two view finders one located on the side and one on the top.
Invented by Kodak the brownie was a small rectangular shape. Probably the most important camera ever invented, it went on to sell in huge numbers. Taking a photo was as simple as raising the camera and pushing a button. Replacement film could be changed in daylight and was available for as little as 15 cents for a 6 exposure pack. The camera itself sold for around $1.00. More information can be found here: Camerapedia
