Kodak introduced the Brownie No. 2 box camera
in 1909, and with it a new size roll film called 120.
Other camera makers took note and made knock-offs.
Cheap and simple, millions were made over a half century.
In this digital age most film types made for early cameras
are history now, but 120 lives on as a professional film.
I bought most of my box cameras for a pittance
at small town antique stores on the Great Plains.
The film is developed commercially. I digitize negatives
with a high resolution scanner and use Adobe Photoshop
to fine tune, sharpen and tone images.
