The Brownie 44B is similar in styling to Brownie 44A camera but without the intregal ever-ready cover, a more conventional leather case was available for the 44B. Significant improvements include a focusing lens with a variable aperture (f8-f16), a two-speed shutter (1/60, 1/30) with an additional B setting for time exposures, and double-exposure prevention. Like the 44A, it has an optical direct vision finder and can use an optional pin and screw flash attachment.
