Hi, Charlene, I have a great deal of information to impart to you, but so does Chuck's website - take a look thru and you'll find out a great deal about the Brownie Hawkeye. I've also written an article about understanding the box camera, which you can find at - click on "Junk Store Cameras", and then click on "Brownie Box Cameras" on the list. Scroll down a bit and you'll find the article.

A scanned copy of the Brownie Hawkeye Manual is available at my gallery page. Go to and enter my member name, mariner8378, in the box. Then go to "Various Kodak Manuals" and you'll find the manual, page by page. You are welcome to copy and print this manual at your own convenience.

Film is available, but you'll have to re-spool 120 onto a 620 spool. Contact me via return email and I'll send you a word document on how to do this.

Good luck and have fun!
