KODAK BROWNIE HAWKEYE

The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera was very popular back in the 1950s, and sold like hot-cakes for over a decade.  They were cheap, easy to use, and produced sharp 3½ x 3½ prints from about 10' to infinity with the non-focusing, internal meniscus lens.  Baby Boomers and even younger people are getting acquainted with the camera their parents or grandparents used.  There really isn't much to go wrong with them, and they're easily repaired by an amateur for common problems like slow or non functioning shutter, or cloudy lens etc.

The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera was made for 620 medium format film, which is no longer commercially available.  Don't be troubled by this, as 120 film is still available, and is exactly the same as 620 film, the only difference is in the size of the spools.  I'll explain how you can easily modify 120 film to work in your Hawke
