Hi, Lisa, Did you buy 127 film for your Brownie Holiday? That's what kind it takes. The Brownie Reflex Synchro Model does, too. As for loading instructions, if you will go to my gallery at (enter mariner8378 in member name box), then click on "various Kodak manuals" you'll see quite a few scanned manuals which will give you a general idea on how to do it.

No. 2A Brownie Box Camera takes 116 film which is not available everywhere, but you can find it on the internet via Film for Classics and B&H (I think).

As for additional information, the internet has info on almost any camera you might have - enter the name of the camera in Google, say, and lots of entries will usually pop up. Chris Eve's Kodak Page and Walker Mangum's Kodak Page are invaluable. The url's are here on Chuck's page, I think.

Good luck and have fun!

Hi again - go to the main page of Chuck's site and click on the manuals section - Ned Fenimore has a copy of the Brownie Holiday manual.
