Bell & Howell was founded in 1907 in Illinois, USA. The company is best known for its cine cameras, including the world-famous 16mm Filmo launched in 1923 and 35mm Eyemo (1925). During the twentieth century it produced an enormous range of cine cameras ranging from 8mm amateur cameras to 35mm professional cameras.
