The Joy Of Being A Camera Nerd

That Kodak Moment, originally uploaded by Colonel Blink.

A screenshot from BBC TVs historical (hysterical) soap opera "The Village" episode 6 in which we are shown an interesting way to hold a Kodak box camera. (ie upside down)

Actually as the shutter button is in the right place I am guessing the front panel fell off and some props manager glued it back on upside down.
Though it could be a visual metaphor for the state of England immediately after the First World War.....................

I have described it as a Kodak but it can't be as I am unable to identify a metal bodied Kodak Box camera made before 1922 and the episode in question is set in 1920.

The camera is, as I am sure you all recognised, a No 2 Brownie Model F first produced in the USA in 1924.

How sweet to be a nerd.
