Kodak Brownie Bull's Eye - 52 Cameras, 52 Weeks

Week 34 - Kodak Brownie Bull's Eye purchased from a seller on Craigslist for $10 sometime in the past year. When I met the seller he explained that it was his parents' camera that he had found in the closet, and he wondered what I would do with it. I explained that I liked to collect old cameras and try to use them if possible.

I had recently purchased a lot of expired 620 film from ebay and planned to use what I thought was an unopened box of expired Verichrome Pan for the Brownie Bull's Eye, but when I opened the box (which was not sealed) the film had already been exposed. This was actually quite exciting and I developed the film later that night - see additional blog post with the results. I went and grabbed another one of the expired rolls of 620 film, this time Kodacolor. 

The Kodak Brownie Bull's Eye uses, of course, 620 roll film, but I have used respooled 120 Lomography 100 color film in it once before. It has a Kodak Twindar Lens that focuses from 4 feet to infinity with zones of scenes, groups, and close-ups. There are shutter speeds of instant and long exposure with an eye level viewfinder. I decided to go for a walk around Baltimore, near my office on my lunch break and proceeded to shoot the entire roll of 8 photos. After seeing the results developed in Kodak D-76, I've decided that for the rest of my photo project I will use fresh film when possible.
