The Bell and Howell Two-Fifty-Two is a vintage 8mm movie camera. This is the deluxe version of the series featuring Bell and Howell's best lens of the era--a fast f1.9 standard plus accessory wide and telephoto lenses on a turret.
The camera is fully mechanical and does not feature a light meter; instead it has a manual exposure dial with guidelines for what f-stop to use in different lighting conditions. We recommend Fomapan R100 as an affordable, still-being-made double 8mm film for use this this camera.
