Kodak, Brownie 127 roll film camera, c1953

English Kodak made from Bakelite, for 8 frames on 127 roll film. Not much more than a simple plastic box camera with rotund, and rather cuddly, styling. Despite an initial dislike of the thing, I've warmed to it recently - because it returns quite nice results. When put into the context of it's designed market, it was a good tool for the task. It's drawback was a small number of pictures from one roll of film. There's a very scarce version produced in limited numbers known as the Albino, in which the white bits were black and vice versa, the only one I have ever seen is in the Leica museum collection in Vienna.
