Canon / Bell & Howell Dial 35
exercises equipment
Image by bcostin
The Dial 35 is a uniquely styled half-frame camera from Canon. Bell & Howell was Canon’s US distributor for a while and their cameras were rebranded under that name for sale in the USA. This is actually the same model as the Canon Dial 35 II, and incorporated a few upgrades over the original Dial model.

It has a wind-up clockwork motor inside the cylindrical grip at the bottom which advances the film and rewinds it. Unfortunately this tends to fail eventually, and without it the camera is pretty much useless. The drive on my camera is noisy but (mostly) functional.

This was taken with an EF 50/1.8 and my good ol’ Canon D30, Canon’s first consumer DSLR. My D30 was sitting in a drawer looking lonely, so I decided to give it a little exercise. (Since I took this, the D30 has gone to live with the in-laws.)

  1. what a cool camera. from the thumbnail I thought it was a primitive remote control.

  2. Thanks JamesBob. It’s definitely one of the most interesting designs I’ve seen.

  3. I used one just like that in high school… it was a dream to work with… look into getting it repaired!

  4. Must…..have…..one….

  5. I used my father’s back in the 1970’s and it was and still is a great little camera. The problems with the spring wound motor drive can easily be repaired by cleaning the old grease and re-lubing.

    Here’s a link to some shots taken by my dad in 1974 and recently scanned by me. The flickr sizes don’t do justice to the resolution of this fine Canon product.

  6. Hi pokomoke65. I’ll have to to try relubing the motor sometime, though I’ve never worked with a spring motor before. Thanks for the links to you father’s photos, too. I enjoyed them.

  7. Hi, I’m an admin for a group called Camera porn, and we’d love to have this added to the group!

  8. i have that exact same camera, do you know where i can find film for it?

  9. Hi liz1021. You’re in luck. This camera uses standard 35mm film. It just takes twice as many photos per roll. When you have your film developed just let the store know that it’s half-frame and they should be able to figure out the prints from there.

  10. thank you very much :)

  11. verry nice cam i love it…
    know you or sombody the momentary price of this piece of jewellery…?
    however…when i get the chance i’ll by this cam
    have fun

  12. I have one of these and was wondering how much to charge for it…anyone have any input I’d appreciate it.

  13. I bought one four days ago on eBay, "as is", for 25 $.

  14. This camera belonged to my father, who purchased it used many years ago. Current prices vary quite a bit. A tested one can run $50 or more. Untested, as Franz304 notes, are less.

    The spring-driven winder seems to be the weak point in the Dial series. The glue holding the outer viewfinder window also weakens over time, so it wouldn’t surprise me if it went missing on some of these cameras.


    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

  15. My mother used one of these when we lived in Mexico from 1876 to 1981 (without the B&H branding). I had completely forgotten what type of camera it was, until I saw this picture – thanks for showing.
    By the way, I’m just trying to digitalize the slides.
    Cheers,
    Fabian

  16. My father bought one thru some type of mail offer.
    It was sometime around 1970????
    It was a great little camera, I had a lot of fun with it.
    Learned a lot taking pictures using black and white film.
    Don’t remember what happened to it?
