Eastman Kodak Six-20 Bull's Eye Box 620 Roll Bakelite Camera - c.1938 Good condition and tested
Launched by Eastman Kodak in 1938, the Kodak Six-20 Bull’s Eye is a box camera made of Bakelite, an early plastic.
The shutter lever is located under a simple meniscus lens with a minimum focus distance of eight feet and a fixed shutter speed with manual bulb mode activated by the lever above the lens.
The primitive viewfinder is only usable for approximating composition and runs along the top of the camera next to the circular metal knob that’s used to advance the film after each exposure. The little nub opposite the braided handle is used to keep the lens level when the camera’s resting on its side for portraits.
The camera originally took 620 rollfilm and the shutter is fully working. The cosmetic condition of the camera is good with some minor wear/rust (see photos for detail).
A lovely pre-WWII box camera.
The manual for the camera is available online here:
