Week 36 – Kodak Brownie Six-20 Junior

Happy Halloween from George and the Brownie!

 The Six-20 Brownie Junior was produced by Kodak from 1934 to 1942. It produces 8 exposures on 620 roll film. It embraces the Brownie ethos of a dark box to protect the film, a lens and shutter to focus light, and not much else. Mine does have a two mode shutter (instant vs. time) and a second aperture setting for bright sunlight.

The Six-20 uses two separate finders arranged 90 degrees apart for landscape or portrait shooting. It has a winged knob on the right side to advance the film and a beautiful Art Deco pattern on the front face.

Box. Shutter. Lens. What can go wrong?
