Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash Outfit

KODAK BROWNIE HAWKEYE FLASH
PRODUCT ID: MF.100823

OVERVIEW
This camera has got Americana written all over it. Nearly every family in the U.S. had one for those snapshots to document trips over the new national freeway system. Not much to operating this one…look thru the waist-level finder, and push the shutter release…rewind till the next number comes up in the red window in the back. It’s a bakelite box for sure, but Kodak did its best to dress it up, adding waves across the side to give it a streamlined look, and something to grip. It’s a good looking camera for its time and it makes good pictures too.

Earlier Hawkeyes accept the slightly larger 120 spools readily. If yours don’t, you can easily trim 120 spools like this.
