Kodak Brownie Hawkeye – A Review of Mum’s Camera – By James Hanes

First a confession: That photo isn’t Mom’s Kodak; but it’s just like it. Using a 1950’s Kodak Brownie Hawkeye model with either 120 or 620 film and a bulb flash is easy and rewarding.

A Brownie Hawkeye was the camera Mom used to take many a family photo starting in 1955. Mom replaced hers with a cheapo 110 camera in the ‘70s, about the time I bought my first SLR. When I spotted this boxed outfit at a thrift shop for $10, it went strait home with me.
