Description

The Kodak Brownie Target Six-20 is a box-type camera from the 1940s. It is based on the Kodak Target Six-20 which was produced starting 1941. The facade has a strong symmetrical geometric pattern echoing the 'Kodak Girl' stripe. The body is metal and covered in leatherette. It has two reflecting brilliant finders. It features a chrome winder with concentric circles.

How to Use

This camera takes uses 616 film which is not available anymore except as expired films. This means that the camera needs modification to take 120 film. Modification is fairly straight forward and will easily give 5 'panoramic' exposures producing 2¼ x 4¼ inch negatives. Check out my page on 'Conversion of a 616 camera to take 120 film'.
