I’m not sure that there’s any camera in my collection that I’ve shot longer and as consistently as the Kodak Brownie No. 2 from 1914. I picked it up for $15 when it was 98 years old, and did a lot of shooting with it on its centennial. Since then, I’ve used it in almost every outing. I love this thing.
In all likelihood, I’ve shot with it more than the original owners. It’s still going strong, and there’s little reason for me to stop. I plan on taking it with me this summer, as well.
I’ve had a handful of other box cameras, but right now this is my only one (apart from the 4×5 box).
Camera: Kodak Brownie No. 2, Model D (1914)
