Kodak Brownie Hawkeye

Update : Rescanned the roll of Kodak Ektar 100 from the brownie for better color.  Updated photos below straight from scanner as jpegs.


I love this camera!  Its a classic point and shoot, you can’t control it because there are no camera controls.  Lens filters and film ISO combinations are the only things that can affect exposure but I think it is best to leave it alone and have fun with the mystery aspect of shooting film.

I shot a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 since I’m not even sure if my camera works.  The aperture is f/15 and shutter of 1/40th  so It needs plenty of light.  I did try and experimented with long exposures with some degree of success.  The shutter needs subtlety when pressing.  I consider myself quite decent with handholding cameras with low shutter speeds but the Brownie’s shutter snaps when pressed which adds plenty of shake.  No tripod mount also so i might have to DYI some GoPro adhesive plates.  Heres a roll of 120 film untouched straight from scanner to Aperture for Jpeg conversions.  The second and third photos are long exposure, 2 and 4vseconds each if I remember correctly.
