The No 2A Folding Cartridge Hawk-Eye model B was made from 1926 to 1934 and used 116 Film. The Kodak 116 film cartridge came in two sizes. One had 12 exposures and cost 60 cents in 1926 and 6 exposures for 30 cents. The camera had four aperture settings numbered 1 (listed as US 8 or f11.13), 2 (listed as US 16 or f16), 3 (listed US 32 or f22.6), and 4 (listed US 64 or f32). The Kodex lens assembly shutter speeds are T (timed), B (bulb), 1/25 of a second, and 1/50 of a second. The cameras viewfinder is mounted to the top of the lens assembly and can be set for landscape or portrait position. On the fold down slid bed are three markings for focus distances. One marked 8 feet or 2.5 meters, fixed 25 feet or 7.62 meters, and 100 feet or 30 meters. The 100 or 30 meter setting is also the infinity setting. The other features of the camera are a cable release socket for a shutter plunger, a foot for setting the camera on a table top for portraits, small red window in the back of the camera for frame counting, Winding key, leather carry handle, and two tripod sockets. Adding or removing film from the camera involved removal of the works of camera to reveal the casing and the film spools at either end. Buying this camera new entitled the buyer to receive 6 months of “Kodakery”, if they simply filled out a postcard provided. Kodakery was a magazine published by Kodak that helped you take better pictures.
