Blair Hawk-Eye, Jr
The Hawk-Eye, Jr. was introduced in 1895. It provided many of the same features as the larger 4x5
Hawk-Eye cameras and included a focusing lens, but was much, much smaller. The camera produced
3½x3½ negatives and was designed to use either daylight loading roll film or plates. Although
designed for amateur use, it was capable of yielding excellent results. It was only produced for five
years, and is not seen very often.
