    Anyone know what camera this is?

    Hi, I found this camera at an Estate sale last year and I haven't been able to find its model or any info about it anywhere online. If anyone has a model# or any info at all it would be greatly appreciated. The closest thing I can find to this exact model is the Bell & Howell Filmo Auto Load Speedster.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Yeah I just found an ad for the camera from 1940. I've seen the speedster models before but not this one.

    $ 127 in 1940... What did a new Chevy cost then, $700?

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
