    So i was messing around with an old Kodak folder that was in terrible condition last night but the Anastigmat lens was worth salvaging. I got to thinking and it seemed to be almost the exact same size lens as the little lens inside my Kodak Hawkeye Brownie Flash. After a little fidgeting and taping i now have a kodak HBF with a sharp Anastigmat lens rigged up.

    Has anyone done this before? What are my chances of this actually working successfully? will the focal distance be different now?
