    This article brought back memories! My first camera was one my dad gave me that was his…a Kodak Baby Brownie special. It was similar to the Bulls Eye, but shorter. I know it has mold specks inside, but now I might try to work on it, since you were able to take care of it on yours. I wouldn’t know where to get the film (127), and finding a developer might be tricky as well. I used to make double exposures by blocking half the lens with masking tape, then moving my subject and switching the tape to the other side.

    Ed…I’m totally loving your article on using the old Brownie Bullseye camera. I have the same camera along with a handful of Brownies dating from the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s. I miss that old film look. Your article has spurred my interest in resurrecting some of these cameras (that are in great shape by the way) by re-spooling them for 120 film as you had discussed. What type of film images are you looking to created with your Bullseye?

      Michael, that sounds exciting! As for me, I plan on doing outdoor scenes and portraits.

      Wonderful News. I have my very first camera. The Brownie Bullseye, in very good shape. Love the info on how to use 120 film. I also have my Moms camera which is a box camera ( Ansco.) Now I can start using my Bullyseye again.
