Fun Facts:
What a great Brownie! Though a simple Brownie at heart, this camera was marketed towards those who wanted to take photography to the next level by taking control over aperture and focus. It additionally has two viewfinders which I find puzzling however I can see how it could be used as a selling point.
The models assembled in the UK have a stamp on the bottom.
