Brownie is the name of a long-running popular series of simple and inexpensive cameras made by Eastman Kodak.
The Brownie camera, introduced in February 1900, invented low-cost photography by introducing the concept of the snapshot to the masses. The Brownie was a very basic cardboard box camera with a simple meniscus lens that took 2 1/4-inch square pictures on 117 roll film. The Brownie camera was conceived and marketed for sales of Kodak roll films. Because of its simple controls and initial price of $1 (equivalent to $29 in 2017) along with the low price of Kodak roll film and processing, The Brownie camera achieved and surpassed its marketing goal.
