The Blair Camera Company was acquired by Eastman in 1899 but was run independently until c. 1908 when it was absorbed into Eastman as the Blair Camera Division.

The Stereo Weno was sold as the Blair Stereo Hawk-eye from c. 1904. Originally the shutter had the T B I selector on a wheel to the right of the lens, later it was moved to above the lens and arc shaped. The price was £5.5.0.
