Vintage 1950's Hawkeye Camera Flash Model By Kodak
Vintage 1950"s Brownie Hawkeye Camera Flash Model. This camera overall in very good condition but will still look used. The camera comes with a 15 page Black & White picture manual. The camera will come with 1 blue flash bulb. Of course this item is for collection only unless you can still film for it because the film would have the battery built in to the film so camera would operate. There are no cracks in camera or lenses and all the lenses you can still see threw them just fine. Arthur H Crapsey EDIT Arthur Hunt Crapsey, Jr (1919-1998) was an influential camera designer working for Eastman Kodak, who had a hand in a great many designs. After graduating in Ceramic Design, he served as a pilot in the US Army Air Corps during World War II. Invalided out after losing his right leg, he became one of Kodak first industrial designers in 1945. Between 1948 and 1958 Crapsey was credited with patents for a large number of cameras.

May 1949-Nov 1951: This is the Brownie Hawkeye non-synchronized non-flash model. Sept 1950-July 1961: This is the Brownie Hawkeye Flash Model which is capable of accepting a wide range of Kodak pin and screw flash attachments. This same camera was also manufactured in France as Brownie Flash Camera. Fun Facts: The Brownie Hawkeye Flash Model Camera is recognized as one of the most popular Brownie cameras made. It is easy to use and is still extremely popular with film photographers because it's cheap to buy, it comes apart easily for lens and viewfinder cleaning, and most will accept 120 film without respooling it onto 620 spools making it even easier to shoot with. The big square negatives it produces are large enough for contact prints or can be enlarged for spectacular sharp prints. The bulb setting for time exposures rounds off this great camera. This beautiful camera was designed by Arthur H. Crapsey, the designer of many other popular Kodak cameras.
