Hi all,

 

I was a film student MANY years ago and I just bought a vintage Bell and Howell 240 off of ebay this week. I also bought a roll of HQ microfilm as it was just a couple bucks.

 

My question is, can I shoot the microfilm in my 240? I am only interested in testing the functionality of the camera and nothing else, before I run, and hopefully do not ruin, a new roll of Tri X.

 

Any information would be helpful, thanks.

if i am not wrong microfilms are not perforated, so you can't load them on moviecameras
