I finally did it…I refurbished this Eastman Kodak Brownie Target Six 20 camera that has been sitting on my shelf since my 40th birthday. Sarah had one heck of a 40th Birthday Party for me which included purchasing old cameras for each of the tables. This is one the cameras she found, so I thought I would start trying to use it.

Breaking down this #Brownie #TargetSix20 for some repair, cleaning, and prep work for my first roll of 620 film.

It was probably manufactured in the 1940’s by Eastman Kodak to encourage people to buy film and take pictures. I was able to purchase 620 film in both 100 ISO and 50 ISO. Here are some of the first images I just had developed and converted to digital by The Dark Room in California.

Here is a video of the shutter mechanism. I had to go inside and clean the lens and the shutter.

Very cool to watch the shutter and aperture mechanism inside this #Brownie #TargetSix20
