My Newest Vintage Camera: Kodak Jiffy

Kodak Jiffy (24)

My new addition to my vintage camera collection, this is the Kodak Jiffy Six 20 Series II folding camera from the Eastman Kodak Co. made in 1937 to 1948. She’s super pretty, although the first series of the Jiffy had a really cool art deco pattern on the front but I just love her.  Old school metal and leatherette cameras are just impossible to say no to and I got her and the original case for $25 which to me is impossible to say no to. She’s the third folding camera I have now in my collection and uses 620 film which is easy to convert from 120 film so I should be out and shooting with her by next weekend. The prints are 6x9cm which is a monster. I really want to do some landscapes which is hard when I live in a city but I think that’d be the best use of that large print just panoramic style shoots. I have been really dry with showing you guy’s vintage photography for the last few months. I’ve just been obsessed with my Polaroid Colorpack this summer and fall and still haven’t bought any new chemicals for developing black and white film. Winter I feel is a perfect time to break out the vintage camera and just head off into the snow to find an adventure…and with a camera named Jiffy you’re likely to find one.
