The Kodak Six-20 Brownie is a classy little pseudo-twin lens reflex camera. It was one of Kodak's Duaflex line, produced during the 1950s up until 1960. The Duaflex IV is the only non-black Duaflex, instead featuring multi-tone brown leatherette and a brown faceplate.

The reason this Duaflex is only being sold for parts or display is that a piece of plastic and some screws are missing from the area around the viewfinder. Because of this, the camera does not close properly. This may be something that is fixable, but because of this, I'm selling the camera as-is.

The shutter is still snappy and works at both settings (Instant and Time). The film advance turns without a problem. This camera features a film advance that prevents you from making a double exposure on your film. There is a tripod mount on the bottom of the camera. Cosmetically, the camera is in decent shape. The metal is a little scuffed up along the front of the camera, and the Kodak badge has been worn away on the top of the viewing hood. The leatherette is still in good shape and still firmly applied. The viewfinder and the lens both have some dust in them, although not enough to prevent you from getting some good through-the-viewfinder (TTV) pictures.

This Duaflex also comes with its original matching brown flash unit. The flash unit has had some of its reflective coating worn away, but the awesomely detailed Kodak decal on the back of it is still in place. The flash unit as not been tested, but does come with one blue Sylvania P25 flashbulb.

This camera does take 620 film, which is the same width as the widely available 120. It's easy enough to respool 120 film onto a 620 spool (or you could contact someone like myself about doing that for you!). This camera comes with one spare 620 spool inside of it.

A manual for this camera is available online here: http://www.butkus.org/chinon/kodak/kodak_duaflex_iv/kodak_duaflex_iv.htm
