The Brownie Fiesta has a molded plastic body with a clear plastic front, over the lens plate, and also has a direct vision viewfinder. This camera was made in many variations. In 1962 till October of 1965, the Brownie Fiesta was available in the familiar two-tone grey and silver model. Then in May of 1965 till June of 1966, a two-tone dark and light blue replaced the original model. There are models that were made with other color schemes that are not in any official information from Eastman Kodak or The Eastman House Museum. The two-tone grey fiesta was a giveaway in the early ’60s as a promotion put on by Campbell Soup. You sent them about 15 soup labels and they would send you a camera. The camera uses 127 roll film and was manufactured in the US and Spain. It has a meniscus lens, f/11 aperture, a single shutter speed of 1/40th of a second, and originally sold for $5.95. The “Kodak Fiesta Camera Outfit” came with a flash unit, AG-1 flashbulbs, one roll of film, a carry strap in a little envelope, and two AA batteries. The flash unit has two contacts that slid into the back of the camera along with tracts on the camera and flash assembly that hold the unit on the top. The flash unit primarily used AG-1 flash bulbs with the Versa chrome Pan Black & White or the Kodacolor film but suggests AG-1B bulbs if using the color Ektachrome film. It is powered by two AA batteries that are placed in parallel and with both negative sides opposite the ejector tab. The camera produces a picture 3 ½” x 3 ½” and a 2” x 2” slide with a picture area of 1 ½” x 1 ½”. The camera pictured above and to the left is in good condition, comes with the original box, has the detachable flash unit, and is worth $10.00 in 2019.
