Turn a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye into a Webcam #celebratephotography
Instructables user arte.sano wrote this quick tutorial explaining how they turned their Hawkeye into a webcam.
Basically all you need is two cameras, I have an old webcam that I got for free in Craigslist, a logitech quickcam, (mine does not work in Vista). The other camera is a cute Hawkeye Brownie by Kodak circa 1950’s (millions of this cameras were sold back in the days in the US), I got mine at the flea market for 5 bucks.
