Description: The Kodak Hawkeye No. 2 Model C is a very basic box camera made of thick, leatherette-covered cardboard introduced in the mid 1920s. Interestingly, the Hawkeye, a name so commonly associated with Kodak, was actually originally manufactured by a little known outfit called the Boston Camera Company. The Boston Camera Company was bought out by the Blair Camera Company in 1890 which was then in turn bought by the rapidly expanding Eastman Kodak Company nearly a decade later in 1899. The original Hawkeye was a wooden glass plate box camera, quite different from the multitude of inexpensive, mass-produced Kodak cameras that it eventually spawned. The Hawkeye No. 2 Model C was the simpler version of the original Hawkeye No. 2, featuring just a single portrait orientation viewfinder and a fixed aperture. The Hawkeye’s only control is the shutter lever which is located on the user’s right hand side just forward of the film advance knob. Linked to the lever is a single speed rotary shutter mated to a primitive fixed-focus meniscus lens.
