What kind of Kowa Bell & Howell is this ?


Recommended Posts

This looks more like a rebranded 16D or 16C, like Sankor made but they also came branded differently. Ask the seller if there are any numbers on the lens body. It will help identify the model.

The one you show looks to be smaller than Kowa B&H / 16H / 8Z (which share the same build and size). Those are popular because of high quality glass and large lens elements that allow for somewhat wider taking lenses.

Having said that, if the lens you found is in good shape and well priced, it can be a good start for shooting anamorphic.
