:( Hi, I Have A B & H Filmo 70-DR And Need To Know How Of If I Can Change The Exposure Settings On The Camera. The Instructions That Came With The Camera Are For A 70-DL, -S Or -H, Not A 70-DR. It States That You Can Adjust The Speed Adjustment Dial To The Desired Exposure /Sec Setting. I Cannot Turn The Dial At All. Does Film Have To Be Loaded In The Camera? It Looks Like You Should Be Able To Adjust The Setting From What I Saw Inside The Film Chamber But The Dial Will Not Budge. It Is Set For 16 Exposures/Sec.
My Question Is, Is The Dial Frozen Or Can The Speed Be Adjusted On The 70-DR As On The 70-DL, -S Or -H? Any Advice Will Be Greatly Appreciated.

Your camera needs an overhaul by a specialist. Old grease seems to stick the governor setting mechanism. Do not force. Once cleaned and freshly lubricated don't let the camera run faster than 32 fps without film. The Bell & Howell cameras are partly made from hardened steel. You can't have anything better although I have once found a wrongly mounted governor in a 1931 Eyemo.
