Brownie Target Six-16

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by gina_grapengeter, Jul 19, 1998.

  1. Help! I am confused by the explanations about the Brownie Six-16. I
    have a camera that I was told was made at the turn of the century. It
    says Brownie Target Six-16 on the front of it, it is contained in
    black leather and it looks like the front pulls off (although I am
    afraid to try this). Is it possible that the camera could be this old
    or were they not made until the 40's?? Any help is appreciated.

    <p>

    Thanks, Gina

    The Brownie Target Six-16 was made in the late 40s. See http://members.aol.com/Chuck02178/46.htm. A lot of people assume that if a camera is a black box camera that it must be old, real old, like the turn of the century. This is not the case. They were made well into the 1950s.

    As for the front of the camera, yes, it can come off. But I would only do it if you need to, like to clean the lens or inspect the shutter mechanism.

    Hope that helps.

  3. I have a Canadian model Target six-16 brownie. It was made in 1932.
    I however haven't heard any info about this particular model, and if anyone could tell me how much it is worth, It would be greatly appreciated, I assume it could be anywhere from $5-20, but considering this seems to be a 'rarer model' (all other models I've heard of were introduced in 1946), I was wondering if it worth more... or less than I thought. :s
