Bell and Howell 250

Jump to: navigation, search

The Bell and Howell 250 is a "focus free" camera with built-in flash which uses 35mm film. It would seem to date from 1996, according to it's internal markings. Its body is typically made of opaque plastic. It uses one AA battery to power a built-in flash of limited strength. It has a "panorama" mode in which it exposes only the middle 13×36 mm stripe of the film frame. It has a 27mm "optical" lens using a single element, which may show significant blurring in the corners of the frame.

Very similar cameras (with a "27mm Optical Lens" in an oval surround) have been seen with other brandings, for example the Jazz 207 and Jazz 206, Cobra Crystal or the Sakar; or in other slightly different case styles.
