I adore vintage movie cameras. It's such fun to imagine what memories they captured back in their heyday.

Circa mid 1950s, the Brownie 8mm Turret f/1.9 model was one of Kodak's early Brownie 8mm cameras. The turret rotates and offers a standard 13mm lens, a 24mm telephoto lens, and a 9mm wide-angle lens.

The core of the camera measures approximately 5 1/2"l by 2 1/2"w by 4"h. The rotating turret adds an extra 2" to the length. Two viewfinders pop up from the top of the camera.

Aesthetically, this camera is in excellent condition. It is quite clean in and out. There are a few light scratches on the aluminum frame -- nothing outside of normal usage marks. The original owner marked his name on a piece of masking tape above the exposure guide. He also marked his name on the interior of the camera. He sure didn't want to lose this baby!

Included with this camera is the original instruction pamphlet as well as a roll of 8mm film (though I'm not sure if it's viable any longer).

This particular Brownie model with the 3-lens turret is quite rare -- snatch it up quick!

Please note, this is being sold as a decorative item. It has not been tested and may or may not be functional.

Vintage 8mm cameras make wonderful collections. Just check out this recent article in the Storque:
