Kodak Brownie Target Six-20
I have two Kodak Brownie Target Six-20 cameras in my collection. One of them is in incredible shape (especially considering the age of the item), while the other is pretty banged-up (see it below). [Related note: For this blog, I’ve decided that I’ll photograph my few banged-up cameras on location, i.e. in some abandoned house.]

Hi there Jacci! Glad you found my blog too – I'll use your comment as a reminder that I need to update it :) I haven't tried the Brownie at all, to be honest. I have plenty of film cameras around here that want to be used much more than the Brownie :) One day, maybe!
HI there, I am so glad to have found your blog. I am a lover of vintage cameras among quite a few I have two Box Brownie Six 20's. I have found a way to adapt 35mm film to work with the camera and have had some manner of success - but much fun doing this. Mostly loving the color and shape, still have to work on getting perfect pics!!!! Have you tried shooting with 35mm film in the Brownie?

Hi Chris – I haven't shot with this camera, but I suggest emailing the guy who (I think) took the sample photos that I link to in the article: ryan at cameraofthemonth dot com. Hopefully this address is still monitored, because the website looks like it was abandoned a long time ago.
I just recently started using my fathers old target six 20 and I was thinking of trying some star trails with it. I thought it was funny that I wasn't the only one to think of doing that. If you have any tips of using this camera, I would love to know.
