The 2018 International Brownie Camera Day(s) has ended!
Check out the breathtaking images in the gallery.
If you participated, BRAVO!
If you didn’t participate, don’t hold your head low or feel bad, there’s always next year and…remember…any day is a good day to use a Brownie Camera!
In February of 1900, the Brownie came along and made photography affordable for just about everyone! A reliable camera could be purchased for $1 and the film, with processing included, added $0.15 to the total…WOW!
Snapshots of the family holidays, leisure outings, weddings, and just about every event imaginable was being captured with a Brownie on Eastman Kodak film. The name “Brownie” was synonymous with popular photography. Over 100 models bearing the Brownie name were produced from the first cardboard box Brownie to the last 110 cartridge Brownie in 1986.
What To Do
- Have Fun!
- Take photographs on any day during February 2019 using any Kodak Brownie Camera. This means an original Brownie, a Brownie Hawkeye, a Baby Brownie, an altered flipped-lens Brownie, ANY unaltered or altered Brownie camera. If you’ve made a pinhole camera or an instant camera from a Brownie, you can use it! Your camera MUST have started life as a Brownie Camera.
