Vintage Kodak BROWNIE HAWKEYE Camera, Flash, FlashGuard

Vintage Kodak BROWNIE HAWKEYE Camera, Flash, FlashGuard - eBay (item 310097336629 end time Nov-08-08 20:55:00 PST)

This vintage Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera comes complete with flash attachment and protective cover. The front is marked, "Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Camera Flash Model."

The label on the flash hood says, "Kodalite Flasholder. Made in Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A. by Eastman Kodak Company. Use fresh "C" size photoflash batteries or Kodak B-C flashpack. Kodak 2-Way Flash-Guard recommended." The label gives suggested settings for using either Kodak film or Verichrome, Plus-X, Super XX Kodacolor, Type A.

The protective cover has a fabric label inside marked, "Kodak 2-Way Flash Guard, Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N.Y. Made in U.S.A. TM Reg. U.S. Pat. Off."

Someone took good care of it. A detailed cleaning would help. There's dust inside the two surprisingly clear and bright viewfinder windows. The carry strap is tough, flexible black plastic or nylon. The protective cover is clear on the front and matte sides and back, still very flexible and soft. The shutter clicks nice and fast.
