Actual f/stops of a No. 2 Folding Autographic Browniegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Brownie Cameras : One Thread
Hello, I have a No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie with the f/stops listed as 1, 2, 3, 4. Can someone tell me what the actual apertures for these numbers are?

Hi, Gerald, I have before me a copy of the 26th edition of Kodak's "How To Make Good Pictures", from 1940 or thereabouts, and I quote:
"The markings 1, 2, 3, and 4 on some single lens folding cameras are merely arbitrary figures though they correspond, roughly, with f.11, f.16, f.22, and f.32."
Hope this helps!
