The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Camera
 - Cameras do not come much more basis than this. Fixed Lens, Fixed Focus, 2 shutter Speeds and manual film advance are not some, but basically all, of this camera's features. Originally designed to accept 620 film, it will accept 120 as long as you have a 620 take up spool. I am guessing the effective shuttle speed is about a 30th of a second and if you are really feeling creative there is a B or Bulb setting to hold the shutter open. Ascetically it is a Art Deco, Bakelite wonder and should be a part of any camera collection. I have had one for a long time, but finally got around to using it this weekend
