The Brownie Hawkeye is a Bakelite camera taking 2 1/3” x 2 1/3” (6x6cm) images on 620 film. It was made in the USA, Canada, and France by Kodak, from 1949 to1961. There were also examples labelled "Brownie Fiesta" and Kodak used this name in 1962 to label another camera. The original design did not have a flash facility, but the Flash model was added in 1950 and labeled Kodak Brownie Flash in France and Canadian. There were two lens attachments sold for the Hawkeye, one was the Kodak Close-Up No. 13 and the other was the Kodak Cloud Filter No. 13. The camera has an oversized brilliant viewfinder and is utilized by holding the camera at waist-level. The camera also has a Meniscus lens, rotary shutter, and an Iconic carry handle. The Hawkeye and Hawkeye Flash is touted as one of the most popular Brownie cameras made although that number is not known. The original suggested retail price was $5.50 and $7.00 for the flash type. This sturdy, reasonably priced, and beautiful camera was designed by Arthur H. Crapsey, the designer of many other popular Kodak cameras.
