I am a 8mm newbie. I just bought a Bell & Howell 605 and was wondering if anyone could help me figure out if I can still get film that is compatible? If so what kind?

I don't have a manual and can't seem to find any info online anywhere.

Hi,

That is a rather common 8mm camera, and a pretty cool one too. Takes regular 8mm film on 25 foot spools; not the super 8 cartridges. You shoot one side, flip the spools, and shoot the other side for a total of 50 feet worth of craziness.

A much more common camera is the Bell and Howell 134. you could probably get away with a manual for that camera since they are so similar. It's a bit of a lower end model, but the compactness and indestructibility are just amazing.

Either way, they are rather straightforward as far as 8mm goes.

Have fun.
