Well, I finally finished my first test roll in the Brownie Hawkeye Flash that I bought recently. And I have to say, I already love this little camera! For the first test roll, I used Plus-X. I developed the film a few days ago, and I just developed prints in my garage darkroom last night. The pictures turned out GREAT! A couple of them are a little bit soft at closer distances, but still not bad. Overall, I was really happy with how the pictures came out. They're surprisingly good for a simple box camera like this. There were absolutely no light leaks or any other obvious problems that I could see. I was really anxious to get a couple of pictures with flash bulbs, because I have never in my entire life used them before. I wanted something worthy of my first attempt (and burning up a bulb), so I got my mom and dad to pose for a picture! One thing I noticed right away with flash bulbs is that the lighting is MUCH better quality. It definitely has a different look to it. The light is more even than a modern electronic built-in flash. A modern flash only lights up a tiny area right around the subject, and tends to wash out the foreground and leave everything else too dark. But flash bulbs seem to light everything up more evenly. Even just the experience of using a flash bulb was so cool! The sound, the little puff of smoke, and even the smell. It made taking a picture a fun and different experience. Here's another flash bulb photo. This is my friends, Gilbert, Joey, and Judith. I wanted to get a picture of them, but we weren't sure where, so they just posed in the hallway. If I had been using a modern electronic built-in flash, I don't think I could have ever gotten this picture in a million years. The door frame on the right would have been the only thing lit up, and their faces would have been totally dark. But with the flash bulb, even though the door frame in the foreground is a little bit overexposed, there is still plenty of detail everywhere else. The flash bulb seems to flood everything with a smooth, even amount of light. This next picture is a Lutheran church a few blocks away from where I live. I've taken pictures of it before, but I thought it would be good subject. I've always liked how the trees seem to frame it... Since you can't change the aperture or shutter speed on this camera, you have to choose the film ahead of time. On a clear, sunny day, 100 ISO film seems to work best. A couple of the pictures I took outdoors might have been a tiny bit overexposed, but not bad at all. (Heck, maybe next time I'lll try Ektar in it, since Ektar LIKES to be overexposed). By the way, I scanned and adjusted these pictures on an older computer with a CRT monitor. I think that with an LCD monitor, they might be a little too bright. I wish I could mail you my darkroom prints - they came out pretty good for a simple antique box camera! I definitely plan to use this camera again soon. It's simple, very easy to fix, and takes surprisingly good pictures. So I'm sure I'll have some more photos to show you guys soon.
