Reflex Brownie

The day finally arrived when I could use the Reflex Brownie.  I was excited to be using this vintage camera it is beautiful not only to hold but to use. I set off out to explore and take photos not really knowing what I would capture but at the same time had a plan the weather wasn't as I expected so had to do with the rain. As I wondered around in an autumn wonderland it was lovely dare I say even in the rain...it was damp, wet and muddy but that didn't bother me at all. 

The first frame was shot then another it gave me such joy to be out using this amazing camera I love it so much.  As I slowly went through the frames I was learning at the same time.

One thing I'm finding is one MUST hold these cameras absolutely still, but it didn't stop me from trying to hold it in my hands (as it's designed to be held in the hands) I'm sure at times I'll not always have my tripod so it's worth a try. 

Experimenting is also on my agenda as i walk with these cameras.  
The 127 film is so small the length of it is the same as my little pinky it is!  


I traveled around today while using the reflex as wanted to capture different areas, and to just see what I could do the film is now finished and ready to be sent off. Should have the results next week.

More photos soon.
