The Brownie Cresta featured a black moulded plastic body with horizontal
ribbing, an optical direct vision finder, a coaxial flash socket, and an optional yellow cloud filter.
Though simple, the Brownie Cresta used 120 film for a large 6cm X 6cm negative image and could achieved impressive closeups with the built-in closeup lens. This popular UK-made camera was followed by the Cresta II and Cresta 3 cameras.
