This attractive and functional metal body Brownie Camera features a distinct light brown leatherette covering with a horizontally striped front panel. It has the two brilliant finders found on many box Briwnies in addition to the somewhat uncommon pin and screw flash contacts allowing for many different Kodak flash units to be used. It's rounded off with a built in slidable sky filter and a handy exposure guide on the side of the camera.

Fun Facts:
I consider the Brownie Flash B Camera one of the more handsome, and functional, of the Kodak box cameras. When you hold it you can feel the added quality that many box cameras lack. The additional control via it's variable shutter speeds including a "B" setting, a built in close-up lens, and even a built in filter, make this abit more than a point and shoot box camera. If you find one, get it and use it and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results!
