Vintage Tuesday: Kodak No. 0 Brownie

no 0 brownie kodak (1)Today I wanted to share with you my newest addition to my vintage camera collection the Kodak No.0 Brownie made between 1928-1935. I bought this lovely and unique camera for $20 just a few weeks ago while antiquing shopping at a market. It uses 127 film, takes 6 x 4 cm exposures is made almost entirely out of cardboard and wood. Below I have a more detailed looked at the camera below because I just love it’s texture and details.

The top side of the camera where you can find the metal clasp to opening the back of the camera, a viewfinder and the metal tap that gives you unlimited exposure. no 0 brownie kodak (8)The side of the camera where you have the second viewfinder and the simple shutter. As well the  lever/knob for advancing the film. Out of all my cameras this is probably the most decorative film advancement I’ve seen, it’s so cute. no 0 brownie kodak (6) no 0 brownie kodak (7)A peak inside the camera, which is made almost entirely out of wood and velvet.
