The Kodak Baby Brownie Special is a tiny Bakelite medium format film box camera made by Kodak in Rochester, NY, USA. It was produced between September 1938 and 1954. This was largely a replacement for the Kodak Baby Brownie, adding an optical viewfinder. Images were 4x6.5cm on 127 film.
The body was made in two halves, held together by a sliding latch either side for film loading; the front panel carried the shutter, lens and film transport, the back box just the viewfinder and red window. ,
