With No 2A Brownie
Front and back view of the No. 2A Brownie Box camera.

According to the Brownie Camera Page, this model was introduced in April 1907 and discontinued in 1936. It uses 116 film and produced images that are 2 1/2 X 4 1/4".

It has a Meniscus lens and a rotary shutter.
Original price: $3.00 Aluminum model $3.75 Color models $4.00

Since I don't have and can't purchase or develop 116 film, I'm running 35mm film through mine. It produces huge negatives--the film plane is about 5 inches long.

For more on using 35mm in 120, 620, 116 cameras.
