It features dual “finders”, meaning the user can take portrait or landscape photos simply by change the camera’s orientation — just like mobile phone cameras of today. It also features a pull tab to control 3 different exposures, and another tab to control timed exposures for lower light conditions.
Aside from managing the antique equipment, there is a serious discipline involved when limiting yourself to 8 exposures at a time. I find I’m not shooting multiple shots of the same scene, rather taking my time and carefully selecting the right shot to take. It’s also hard to have to wait sometimes weeks at a time before I see my exposures. Ultimately, it’s been a rewarding experience going against the grain of otherwise “instant” digital and mobile solutions that have become so popular today.
Selling for as little as $1, the Kodak Brownie was the first device to make personal photography popular. I’ve collected nearly 20 pieces of Kodak Brownie equipment and look forward to sharing those items and the photos I’ve taken over time.
