Hello, My name is Lacey Fuller. I am 16 years old, and very serios about photography. I have been given a Kodak Brownie Target, Six-16, from my neighbor. His mom had it when he was a child. (1935-ish) I have been looking for flim for the camera for weeks and have come up with nothing. If you or know of someone who has any and would like to sell it, i would love to hear from you. Thank You.

Hi Lacy, I believe your camera uses a 620 size film,which is hard to find, but is similar to a 120 size film , which you can find at any professional camera shop. The trick is that to make this 120 film fit into your camera you must reduce the diameter of the top and bottom of the film spool. It helps if you have a 620 spool to measure from but take a pair of nailclippers and "bite" small pieces off the edge until the 120 spool is about the same size as the 620 spool. It should now fit ok. You will need another take up spool (hopefully an old 620 one) and make sure you insist on getting your 620 spool back from your photo lab as they can be hard to find. The little red on window on the camera will show frame numbers advanceing as you wind and shoot the camera. For best results keep the sun behind you, have fun.

Lacey, Bill was incorrect in telling you that it takes 620 film agfa and kodak put out 616 film it is no longer made as far as I know. I have looked myself. It may be close in size to 620. I don't know for sure but I'm going to check it out some time. my advice would be to find a camera that takes 35mm, or 120 film. good luck Barb
