This camera belonged to my brother and I ended up with it as well as another one. My feedback speaks for itself. Buy with confidence. Please leave feedback we all need a track record for our buyers. I will leave feedback after I receive it. That way I know that you have received the item.

This is a Bell & Howel, 8mm movie camera, with an electric eye and an adjustable file speed control. This movie camera is in almost excellent condition with no missing pieces, parts or scrapes or dents. The inside is very clean and has an two half full spools in it. It is a black color with a little bit of a leattte look. It is made of some type of metal but a magnet doesnt stick to it. On the front top it says Bell & Howell and on the bottom Elecric Eye. Inside the camera it has a number AY-75336 made in USA. Around the front of the lens it reads, Bell & Howell Comar Zoom Lens.

This is set up for a tripod or handle. The handle comes with it. The handle has a few spots w the paint has come off, what I believe to be aluminum. The strap is in terrific condition. W the handle goes on the camera t are a couple spots w the black paint has come of. Very minor. I have not tested this camera to see if it works. I usually dont test the cameras that I sell because I dont have the equipment or dont know how. When I pushed the on button I heard it running. I cannot guarantee if it works or not. I have described this camera to the best of my ability.

The case is in very good condition except for a few small scratches, a couple of dark marks on the front which may come off and one rub mark on the back from usage. You will see this on the pictures. The inside of the case is in good condition but needs to be cleaned out. It has some dark spots on the bottom of it from w the camera sits and some loose dirt in it. Yes, t is one flaw. As you can see on one picture that the zipper needs to be sewed on in about a 4" area on the front. T are no holes in the leather case. On top of the case is a sticky mark from a sticker w it was labeled which can be removed. The case is top grain cowhide, Crafted by Bell & Howell. T are no tears or cracks on this case besides what I mentioned above. The case is still stiff and in great shape like it was when bought. The strap on the case is also in good condition. The camera are in terrific condition. The case may need to be wiped off a little. This movie camera weighs 5+ pounds unpacked.

This is a terrific vintage item which may date back to the late 50's or early 60's. So if you are a camera collector, restorer or plan on using it... then it is for you.

Thank you for stopping - Good luck bidding or shopping.
