Fun Facts:
This camera is abit of an oddity in that the box camera design was not manufactured in great numbers by Kodak AG in Germany. The cameras produced in Germany tended to be of a more intricate design, like the Kodak Retina cameras. Even this Brownie 620, with it's f/stop selection and close-up lenses, shows a degree of precision not found in many Brownie box models. Click here for more information about Kodak AG in Germany.
