Brownie Starlet Camera

Here at Retroplanet.com we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.

This is a photo of a vintage Kodak camera. The model is referred to as the Brownie Starlet. Kodak first made a Brownie model camera back in the year 1900. Since they were very affordable and easy to use, the Brownie models became very popular. This particular model of camera, the Starlet, was manufactured from 1957 to 1962 in the U.S. It uses 127 film and has a detachable flash. With a plastic body, one of these cameras originally sold for $10.00.
