HISTORYThe brand name "Hawk-Eye" originated with the Boston Camera Company which started using it in 1888 for a detective camera. The Boston Camera Company was bought by the Blair camera company (also located in Boston) in 1890. Blair Camera Company was then acquired by Eastman Kodak and moved to Rochester, NY.
