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.

Fun Facts:
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!
