N°140 : Brownie Fiesta Camera

A simple single speed snapshot camera that takes 12 exposures on 127 film. The R4 is a modification to the original Brownie Fiesta, manufactured between 1962 and 1966, to utilise flashcubes which have to be rotated manually.
The silverpaper under the transparent parts of the camera looks a bit "frompy", probably due to rain on a Belgian fleamarket. Many cameras have some waterdamages from fleamarketresellers that are exposing their stuff in uncertain weatherconditions.
Bought for 4 Euro, Bruges, Belgium.
