Updated review: Kodak Brownie Hawkeye

I found a roll of film still inside this Kodak Brownie Hawkeye when I bought it. When I had it developed I found late-1960s photos of a family’s Niagara Falls vacation! I then took the camera with me on Route 66. So you’ve just got to read my updated review, here.

    There was a time you could buy a box full of these on a weekend, for $1 each or less.
    I won’t say those were bad times.

      In the 80s I bought more than a hundred old simple cameras at a dollar or two each. These were just junk nobody wanted then!

        I think my record low price purchase was a Polaroid Swinger – for 15 cents!

    My late sister, who was a curious combination of Auntie Mame and Wednesday Addams, insisted on using a Brownie Hawk Eye until her death 6 years ago. It was left to her baby brother to keep her supplied with 620 film. Thus I became an expert at respooling 120 film. Admittedly she took some amazing pictures with it so I could hardly object to keeping her in film.

      You were a kind and generous brother! Iโ€™m sorry you lost your sister, though. Whatever became of her Brownie Hawkeye?

        My sister’s camera takes pride of place in the box camera section of my camera collection.
