N°180 : Kodak Hawkeye 8

Kodak has always done something with boxes. What the hawkeye has to do with this tupperware I still don't know. Took me 15 minutes to find out where the shutterbutton was,'s the grey plastic plate under the lens,...not very proud of myself... The rewind mechanisme is rather funny, you have to turn a level till the spring is under tension, there is a security, if you go to far it's de-armed itself with a breaking noise, so you can start again whitout damaging the mechanism. With a full tension, you can film an amazing 10 seconds. Not a Tarkovski-thing.
