I was recently given a bunch of camera gear to pass along. Most of it wasn't very interesting, but there was a nice Kodak folder that took 120 film so I kept it as a plaything.
I've done some googling about this camera and I can't find any evidence about its existence. Of course that doesn't mean it's rare, so I'm posting here to see if anyone knows anything about it.
It's a No. 2 Folding Hawk-Eye Model C. It looks a lot like an Autographic Brownie Model C, except that it doesn't seem to take a cable release. The camera was "made in Canada by Canadian Kodak Co. Limited, Toronto, Ont.". The shutter is marked Kodo No. 0, made by Kodak Rochester. Serial number is 386xx.
The diaphragm is a simple ring that you rotate, with holes. The holes are marked 1 through 4.
I put a roll of APX 100 through it today (I only had a couple of rolls so I don't feel like getting invested in it), just to see how good it might be. It's fun enough to use. I hadn't used a rollfilm camera with the red window on the back in many years.
Does anybody know anything about these cameras?
I could post a picture tomorrow if anyone cares. I don't really have any digital gear so it would have to be a crappy picture I took with my PDA.
