Vintage Kodak Brownie Starflex twin lens reflex style camera for use with 127 film. This one has a "Kodakalite Midget" detachable flash unit. This camera is a psuedo twin lens reflex camera with a very bright clear glass viewfinder. The top lens isn't coupled with the bottom lens, as with a true TLR (think rollieflex or yashicaflex etc.) This camera does NOT have a working shutter. The aperture won't close after the shutter button has been depressed and the photograph taken.
However, It's in very good cosmetic condition. There is some wear on the faceplate, particularly at the lower left edge. The brown plastic body is in very good condition, showing some abrasions and scratches on the smooth brown surfaces. There are a couple of very small dents in the aluminum lens ring around the top lens. The viewfinder glass is bright with very little dust. It would make an excellent camera for TtV (through the viewfinder) photography.
The detachable flash unit is also in very good condition. There is the lightest of surface wear on the brown plastic handle. The metal distance scale on the back of the flash is in very good condition. The silvery painted dome is in very good condition, but does have a few very small areas of missing finish.
The cloth strap is in very good condition.
It measures approximately 6 inches tall (with flash attached) by 6 3/4 inches wide by 2 3/4 inches deep.
