Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Fun!

Newer Older

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.

    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.}

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

    Unfortunately there are very few of these in the UK.

    What a great idea. Don't think i would be brave enough to do this to a camera though.

    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...

    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! :) :)
