Wonderful 1962 Bell and Howell 8mm Zoomatic Optronic Eye Auto Load with it's original black leather case which has a grey velveteen interior.

Camera is 'duo speed' has a slider with settings including 'animation' and 'slow motion' and has it's original Bell & Howell 8mm cartridge inside. Winding handle on the camera's left side extends out when in use and folds flat against the body as per the photos when not in use.

Zoom lens with a switch underneath marked 'Type A' and 'Haze'. Switch to the left of the lens is marked 'automatic' and 'manual'.

The motor runs but this camera is being sold as an aesthetic object as I can't vouch for it's functionality - or the availability of early Sixties 8mm cartridges!

The famous Zapruder film of JFK's assassination was filmed on a Bell & Howell Zoomatic Director series model 414 PD.

The carry case has one split corner and is a little dirty inside. The rubber of the camera's eye piece feels a little perished but is intact. The padded vinyl side panels are beginning to lift a little at the front corners - could use a spot of glue.

Heavy, solid body. Measures 18cm (7") from front of lens to back, 15cm (5 3/4") high and 6cm (2 1/4") wide.

Case measures 26cm (10 1/4") high, 20cm (8") wide and 9cm (3 1/2") deep.
