Ansco Craftsman : LUSENET : Brownie Cameras : One Thread

Does anyone know what type of film this camera was designed for. This is the "kit" camera Ansco marketed in the '50's. I'm thinking of acquiring one to assemble with my 8 year old daughter. I think it might be a neat project for us. However, I don't want to go to all that time and expense for a camera we can't use!

Thanks John

Hi, John, The Ansco Craftsman took either 120 or 620 from what limited information is available to me. If you can find one that's unbuilt, that's a wonderful thing to do with your daughter! I know that a talented guy like you will be able to figure it out; if not, ask her to help you!
