Brownie In Motion visits the Ohio Camera Collectors Society

 

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in the Ohio Camera Collectors Society (OCCS) Show and Sale on Saturday, May 17 at the Aladdin Shrine Center.  The club’s president, Daniel Hausman, has been following the camera obscura project since the very beginning and was kind enough to invite Brownie In Motion to their event.

Little did I know,  the Kodak Brownie Target Six-16 camera  holds a special place in the hearts of OCCS members, who, in the year 2000, designed and produced a Millennium edition of this camera. Only 100 of these commemorative cameras exist, which honor the 100th anniversary of the Brownie and the start of the new millennium.
