Fun Facts:
This was the last Brownie Cresta model manufactured. It was redesigned with a more angular style moulded plastic body, a grey top, plain lens panel, and a change from a glass Kodet to a less expensive acrylic Dakon lense with two apetures. Like it's predecessors, the Cresta and Cresta II cameras, it used 120 film for a large 6cm X 6cm negative image though camera shake can be problematic because of the relatively slow shutter speed.
