This is one of my favorite box cameras because the dark maroon leatherette and brass fittings are such a beautiful combination. The shutter and film advance are working. To access the "B" setting, you pull the tab outward, that is on the left side panel, as you hold the camera for shooting.
It uses 116 film, which was a discontinued film size, but thanks to the awesome folks at the film photography project, 116 is being hand rolled onto 116 spools, and is available for shooting again! This makes your box camera usable for photography. How cool is that!!
Their 116 film MUST be processed as ECN2, not in standard color negative chemicals! Don't send this to a regular color negative lab. It will ruin their chemistry and they will ban you for life.
Check out this page for full info on where to get your film processed. https://filmphotographystore.com/products/116-film-kodak-vision-200t-1-roll
You can also search for expired 116 film on ebay, but it's super old film and your results may not be good.
This one is in good condition, however the corners are worn, as is the bottom and a few other very small areas are missing the marroon leatherette surface. The brass fittings have lost some of their luster. The viewfinders are frosted glass, somewhat dim (as box camera viewfinders tend to be) and have very little dust on the mirrors. The strap is present and in very good condition.
It measures approximately 3 7/8 inches wide by 5 1/4 inches tall by 6 3/8 inches deep.
