Brownie Bullet

Vintage Camera: Brownie Bullet
[Taken 24 January 2011 | iPhone 4 | Instagram filter: Earlybird]

This week’s photo would have been by the Brownie Bullet, rather than of the Brownie Bullet, had the weather not turned nasty late this afternoon. I decided that the drive to Taylor Photo wasn’t worth risking my safety — not over eight exposures of 127 film.

Just remember that the photos you’ll see next week will have been taken by this camera.

  1. It was manufactured sometime between 1957 and 1964. It’s just a box camera, no settings, and it takes 127 film (aka “Brownie film,” although other cameras use it, too).

    So, this is a 50-year-old camera. 🙂

  2. Not difficult, but a little pricey. Each roll has eight or nine exposures, and costs $9 per roll plus another $9 to get it developed.
