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 3x3 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.
