The 'Brownie' Movie Camera, Turret f/1 -9 is equipped with a fixed- focus f/1 -9 lens and a 3-position turret housing a wide-angle converter lens, a telephoto converter lens and a lens hood. Either of the two converter lenses or the lens hood can instantly be brought into position by rotating the turret. The maximum aperture of the combination is the same as that of the camera lens, i.e. f/1.9.


The Standard 13mm. f/1-9 lens is recessed behind the front panel of the camera; when taking Standard shots the lens hood in the turret is moved into position. To cover a larger or smaller field, as determined by the finder, wide-angle or telephoto coverage is obtained by rotating the turret to bring either the 9mm. Wide Angle Converter or the 24mm. Telephoto Converter Lens into position. The front finder is clearly marked to show the field of view for each of the three turret positions. Correction for parallax is provided by means of an adjustable slide on the peep sight of the finder.
