Brownie is the name of a long-running series of box cameras by Eastman Kodak. The Brownie was intended to be cheap and affordable to anyone and simple to use, following the Kodak slogan “You push the button, we do the rest.”
The Brownie Flash IV is one of the later models, produced by Kodak Ltd. in England in 1957. It takes 6 x 9 negatives on 620 roll film and features an f/14 Kodet lens with close-up lens and yellow filter, a cable release socket, and a shutter lock for long exposures. And – as the name suggests – the camera is synchronized for flash.
When you compare it to other Brownie models, this camera is one of the more pretty ones in the series. I like the coloring and the light brown leatherette covering very much. With all the features it’s kind of a “Deluxe” Brownie 🙂
