Kodak Twin 20 – Vintage Camera 620

Inspired by TTV or Through The Viewfinder photography I decided to get myself a vintage camera.  Once I learnt you can respool 120 film onto 620 spools to let these old 620 cameras live again – well I got even more enthused.

(Here’s six methods to get film into your 620 camera)

So far I have bid on (and won) five vintage cameras off ebay.  Gulp!  Here’s the first one I bought – a Kodak Twin 20.

It’s surprisingly compact, takes 620 film and as well as the now commonplace viewfinder on the back it also has a waist level viewfinder on the top. I gave her a good clean (it’s so pretty it has to be a girl camera).  She has a dent or two around her lens but I still love her.

She cost me 99 pence plus post and packing.

I hope to run a film through her once I have my film changing bag and have mastered to art of respooling!
