This a late 1950's to early 1960's KODAK 8mm Home Movie Camera.
"WHAT A FIND!" were the exact words our neighbor Richard used to describe this hand held home movie camera. Richard worked for Eastman Kodak in Rochester NY for 42 years.
He took a good look at this camera for us and used words such as "A Real Beaut" - "A Gem" - "Mint" - "Quality" and many more. He believes that this Brownie Camera was NEVER USED - it was that Clean and Perfect inside and out. Looking at the box and its contents, he believes that this was either an unsold model from a Kodak Dealer or most likely it belonged to a fellow Kodak employee who stored it properly or had it on display.
Richard also was able to tell us that 8mm film is still available via order on the internet and if you have or can find an 8mm projector you could enjoy making and viewing Retro Home Movies with this unit.
As seen in the photo's the Camera is in EXCELLENT/NEW Condition. The box is in decent condition and does show some slight discoloration on the corners and edges. The original manual, unmarked price tag, and filter lenses are all included in the complete set.
An Excellent KODAK COLLECTIBLE to display with your other Vintage Kodak/Photography items.
A QUALITY - PROUDLY MADE in the USA item - Manufactured in Rochester NY
The following are direct excerpts from Brownie.Camera:
Kodak dealer catalogue 1958
This camera is just what the amateur has been waiting for a really simple, inexpensive 8mm. movie camera which is easy to use and which takes top quality pictures in full rich colour or black and white. All the user has to do is load, set the lens aperture according to the built in guide, and press the exposure lever.
A 'Lumenized' f/2-7 fixed-focus lens, easy sprocketless loading, builtin exposure guide, and a continuous running device which enables 'self-movies’ to be taken, are a few of the features that make the 'Brownie' Movie Camera Model II such an attractive proposition.
The 'Brownie' Movie Camera Model II is sturdily built of aluminium and beautifully designed to meet the taste of the most critical cine- enthusiast. All metal parts are chrome plated."
