Hello all,
amongst my collection of cameras I have the Russian Kiev 16 C-3. It is a copy of the Bell and Howell 200T. It is the smallest 16mm camera I know of and possibly a great traveling camera. I had assumed however that the lenses were c-mount. Turns out they are bigger than that.
So I'd like to find out if the original Bell and Howell 200T cameras are also not c-mount, or if this is a point of difference between the russian copy and the original.
Also, according to the Wiki article on the 200EE the kodak magazines require double per film. This is odd as the russian cartridges that came with the Kiev seem to work with single perf film. Can anyone confirm wether the kodak magazines do indeed require double perf or if there are some that do and some that don't or just what the situation is.
many thanks,
richard

The magazine load filmos that I have (just marked 16mm Magazine Camera 200) use a c-mount. in fact I swiped one of the lenses to fill out the turret on my 70DR

I have opened a couple of The Kodak mags up. There is a central sprocket that is double perf. The film passes that sprocket twice and the sprocket runs part of the mechanism..

Thanks charles,
so the russian cartridges are different form the Kodak ones. Curious, but handy.
and the russian copy has a different mount to the Bell and Howell. Curious, but handy that the B & H is a c-mount.
cheers,
richard

Hi Richard,

found that old post.

I am very interseted too in these little autoload 200.

I learn here that Kiev magazines are single perf and fit the Bell & Howell.

Did you used your Kiev, and reloaded magazines by your own ?

I know that reloading 200 magazines is a bit tricky, perhaps easier with the Kiev's ?

Cheers,

Philippe
