The Mickey Mouse Brownie Target Six-20 was manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company in circa 1960. It was a basic box camera with horizontal and vertical view finders that show magnified images. Fitted with a single meniscus lens for taking pictures from eight feet to infinity without focusing, accompanied with a simple snapshot or time exposure shutter. This is likely one of the most common Kodak cameras made.The Brownie Target Six-20 took eight 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch black and white exposures or six 2 7/8 x 5 inch Kodacolor pictures on no. 620 roll film. The camera measured approximately 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 x 5 inches. The mickey Mouse version appeals to both camera collectors and Disney collectors. There is a controversy about the origin of this camera, as to weather it actually when into production. Some believe that only a few prototypes were made, and early prices were through the roof. Since many more have been popping up, the prices have been dropping dramatically. The question as to if it is real or a fake comes in play.
