Bell & Howell made the bet however be attacked to with it by the top, by improving the design features, solidity and the completion. Where Kodak saw only by the series of the Star, very made of plastic, Bell & Howell manufactured a camera very made of metal, sheathed gray fabric or of black leather (is necessary it to see a targeting Mister/Madam there), equipped with an electric cell ordering the diaphragm, with which can be associated a specific flash.
Nearly 45 years later, the camera makes old-fashioned.
