Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Fun!

My take on the Brownie Hawkeye

Positively the most common camera I've fun into :)


©1949-1961 - Eastman Kodak


Alright so these aren't some crazy rare Brownie Cams....


The one in the middle is in my collection and is pristine


The "blue and yellow" had major issues. Broken shutters and the likes...

so I had a little fun with them in the form of a rattle can of paint!


Add a little color to them, made them new again!

    Cool! Love those colours... I have a normal old black one. I love the age it adds to an image.

  • Jamie PRO 5y

    hahaha... wish i had red. but my kids used all my rattle can red to re-paint their x-boxes... lol!

    Colourful trio.
    Nice way of reviving these beauties.

    Beautiful lineup!

    It's totally believable that Kodak may have made a range of colours- you're just anticipating what might have been. {I've been after one of these for a while too; they are less common in Britain.}
  • Jamie PRO 5y

    awcam - you need one? I can get you one. I see them all of the time, passed one up today as a matter of fact!

    They look terrific! Very nice paint job.
  • IC-UC 5y

    Unfortunately there are very few of these in the UK.
  • Michael Fortner PRO 5y

    Oooooo! I want one in red now!
  • Dougally PRO 5y

    What a great idea. Don't think i would be brave enough to do this to a camera though.
  • Jeff PRO 5y

    Too cool!
  • ArthurJS PRO 4y

    These are gorgeous, My model is also pristine, and I have already shots a couple of rolls in it, but now I am inspired to maybe pick up some others, and grab some spray paint. Fabulous!

    Looked at these and thought, "OMG! There are Hawkeyes that I don't have in my collection?" Then I read the text and realized you painted them. Now just have to wait for my pulse to slow down to normal...
  • Jamie PRO 3y

    bassoon66 Oh No! hahaha! Sorry for the scare :) These cameras were parts cameras only, or I would never have painted them, just having a bit of fun for my camera room display! :) :)
