Re: Bell & Howell: Filmo 75 (Field Model)

My point was that the data points appear to be coming from open, fixed price offers, not actual sales. Only completed sales are valid as price points. The open ebay listings should not be permitted in the sales history.

Re: Bell & Howell: Filmo 75 (Field Model)

Some of the posted price sources are bad, as they represent (long) ongoing asking prices, not actual sales. The sales history for this camera runs pretty consistently between $100 and $200. Two of the listings posted here are for the same camera, the second with a price reduction from $499 to $399. ...

Bell & Howell: Mod.10

Are you sure you don't mean Bell Model 10? I know of no such Bell & Howell model, and this is a frequent error. Different company, not related to Bell & Howell.

Bell & Howell: Filmo 70AC

The date for this camera should be 1932. It was first announced in the June-July 1932 issue of Filmo Topics. I would also note that there are no known examples, though period documentation includes photos, so there was at least a prototype. if any were manufactured, none have turned up to date.

Bell & Howell: Filmo 75A

Not leather. All Filmo 75's and Field Models are covered in plasticized cloth.

Polaroid: Polaroid 100 (rollfilm)

I am surprised at the low prices quoted for this camera, but judging from the auction results shown, I believe those prices have been compiled from results for the Polaroid Automatic 100, which is much more common, and brings prices more like those shown for this camera. The rollfilm 100 is one of t...

Re: Camera Values Comparison: 1990 vs. 2005.

There's a problem with the lower end of the list, with the negative values (and by extension, with all). First, $20 shipping is not realistic for most of these cameras. But to make a correct comparison, you must subtract the shipping amount from both the 1991 and 2005 figures to get a correct percen...

Re: Unusual quesion from writer

3-1/4 x 5-1/2 is post card size, so the camera in the photo is a No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak.

Argus: Argus A Black

This is not the first American 35mm camera, by a very long time. The first American 35 was the first (commercially manufactured) 35mm still camera in the world, the Tourist Multiple, first sold in 1913, beating out the Simplex by a very narrow margin. The Ansco Memo appeared in 1925, so Argus was ha...
