Item details

Before fancy plastics, and with wood a tad expensive for a simple product, people used to make cameras out of humble cardboard. And they did it so well that their boxes still work more than a century after the fact.

This Cartridge Hawk-Eye Kodak has a leather(ette?)-covered cardboard body with a metal chassis, two viewfinders, a B/I shutter and a meniscus lens. If you're wondering where it's at, it's actually *behind* the shutter, which doubles as a lens cap of sorts.

The camera takes 120 roll film, still widely available, and its shutter seems to be within one stop of 1/30 s., making this '20s beast a perfectly usable camera. Though the handle is starting to deteriorate, the body is in good condition. The viewfinders are dim, of course, but will still give you some indication of what you're pointing at. Besides, the fun in using a century-old tool isn't in making minute adjustments to composition, but in the lovely, soft and dreamy images you will get!

This little wonder-box is a perfect gift for an experimental/lomography-minded photographer. And there are no batteries required - just pop in a roll of 120 (not included) and shoot away!
