General Kodak Hawkeye No 2 Cartridge Model C Information

The Hawk-Eye No. 2 model C of 1926 was a simpler model with just one viewfinder, and no choice of aperture. The camera was reissued in 1930 as anniversary giveaway of Eastman Kodak Co. for 550,000 children at the age of 12

Camera Company was bought out by the Blair Camera Company in 1890 which was then in turn bought by the rapidly expanding Eastman Kodak Company nearly a decade later in 1899.

 The original Hawkeye was a wooden glass plate box camera, quite different from the multitude of inexpensive, mass-produced Kodak cameras that it eventually spawned. The Hawkeye No. 2 Model C was the simpler version of the original Hawkeye No. 2, featuring just a single portrait orientation viewfinder and a fixed aperture. The Hawkeye’s only control is the shutter lever which is located on the user’s right hand side just forward of the film advance knob. Linked to the lever is a single speed rotary shutter mated to a primitive fixed-focus meniscus lens.

 Two metal latches located on the top and on the user’s right hand side of the camera hold it together. Undoing these latches allows the camera to be pulled apart to load and unload film. On the top is the viewfinder window and behind it are two metal studs that anchor a leather handle. The only things on the back are a red window to keep track of the current frame count and an embossed Kodak badge reminding you to use 120 film with this camera.
