The Six-20 Brownie Model F is a "deluxe" version of the popular Six-20 Brownie Model E. This well made Brownie features an light brown leather cloth covered metal body, gilt metalwork, brass fittings, and two brilliant view-finders. This camera has a very useful built-in sliding portrait lens for close-ups and a yellow filter for use with black and white film. It has a 2-pin flash contact for flash pictures, tripod sockets for horizintal and vertical use, and a shutter safety catch that helps eliminate double exposures. This camera also features a cable release socket which is uncommon on Brownie cameras.

This camera had a relatively short production run without any variations that I know of.

Fun Facts:
The Six-20 Brownie Model F was cosmetically evolved from the Six-20 Brownie Model E Camera. This is a higher-quality workhorse of a camera from a great series produced in the UK for 20 years, starting in 1937. These box cameras were manufactured to last using heavy-duty sheetmetal. I come across Six-20 Brownie cameras often at flea markets and yard sales, and rarely does one not work! The Six-20 Brownie Model F is a less common model of the Six-20 Brownie series.

Though not the same model Brownie, the Model E and Model F are exactly the same except for cosmetics.
