Kodak Hawkeye Brownie: 620 Film

These are photos taken with a 1950’s box camera, the Bakelite Kodak Hawkeye Brownie that takes 620 film. I hand-re-rolled the film + backing paper from a 120 spool to a 620 spool, which works great. I use a Graflock back for one phase of the re-roll, which also works great; the other phase in a dark bag.

I also took this camera apart and cleaned out everything, VERY easy to do as it’s so simple. The lens produces surprisingly nice results as long as you stand far enough away from your subject, 10-12’ is optimal. I also have the push-on closeup lens, more on that later.
