This popular camera has a "twin-lens reflex" pattern with a large brilliant
finder with folding hood.
The non-synchronised model was produced from 1940 until August 1941. The Synchro Model, with a 2 pin flash system, was produced from September 1941 until May 1952.
I've always felt that this Brownie model was out of place, unlike just about any ther Brownie camera. It's quite heavy and almost clumsy to use. The flash unit uses a strange attachment system. With that said, it is fun to use!
