The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye is a Bakelite box camera that takes 6x6cm images on 620 film, made in the USA and France by Kodak, between 1949-1961. There were also examples labelled "Brownie Fiesta" and "Brownie Flash". The original design did not have a flash facility, but the Flash model was added in 1950 and called the Brownie Flash in France and the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash in the USA. Earlier models of the camera have a metal film advance knob; later models have a knurled plastic knob.
The shutter has an instant setting but the precise speed is unknown, it is thought to be between 1/30th and 1/50th of a second.
This camera is in good condition and is the flash model, but has unfortunately been cleaned over zealously by it's previous owner, who stripped the nameplate. An interesting camera for display or to use, it is possible to squeeze 120 film in to cameras made for 620 film with a little work.
