Bell & Howell movie cameras

Bell & Howell 100′ Roll Cameras: Bell & Howell began manufacturing 16mm cameras in about 1924. Their “70 Series” Cameras (AKA “Filmo”) continued production into the 1970’s with few modifications.Many pre-WWII 70-Series Cameras required 2R Film, as did some of their 1920s-vintage 16mm projectors. Later cameras (most of what is in use today) can run 1R Film, but the customer must determine for sure, whether or not their camera has a second row of teeth on the drive sprockets.

Bolex movie cameras

Bolex: It is difficult to categorize Bolex cameras as to 1R vs. 2R requirements. About 90% of these machines are designed to run 1R Film. There are some that, like the Bell & Howells, are “pre-war” and will need 2R unless they are modified (not a big job, by the way). As a rule, if the Bolex in question is a “Reflex” Model, it should run 1R. The customers must determine their own needs, as with the Bell & Howell Cameras. Visit the Bolex website
