Highlights from my collection
It is about 40 years ago that I accidentally bought a (Brownie) box camera, my first camera was the Six-20 Brownie B, bought in a local antique shop, unlike that shop the camera is still there.
On this page I would like to show you the most important cameras from my collection. There are more rare cameras on this website, but I do not have them in my collection.
If it says Sold under the camera, you’re too late, it means that I no longer have them in the collection because, yes they are for sale! (sale(at)browniecam.com)
My collection mainly consists of the box cameras (Brownies & Hawk-Eyes), some Brownie Movie cameras and almost all Single Use Cameras on this website.
For some regular cameras, it is precisely the box kept by the camera that makes it a rare item.
Cameras with original packaging
Part of the collection in 2011
The original packaging of a camera, often even better than the design of the camera, reflects the era of the years in which the camera was manufactured. But they are scarcer than the cameras. Due to their fragility and use over the years, there are very few left. Some boxes have been kept because they were often used to store the camera and thus become a fragile utensil.
In the BrownieCam.com collection, many boxes have been brought together, one better preserved than the other, but together it gives a great dimension to the collection. Fortunately, there are enough collectors who recognize this fact and appreciate the added value of the original packaging.
