Beautifully finished in blue and gray with brushed aluminum, it's one

While I'd never compare the Bella 66's performance to that of a modern
day digital SLR. The Bella has it all over
boring cameras when it comes to style.
There was a time when camera makers had artistic design people on
staff. No need for that anymore.
Just get out the cookie cutter.
Like the camera, the matching vinyl case has
survived fifty four years. I'd be willing to
bet that your super-freakin' digicam will have been long recycled into
some other piece
of throwaway something or other fifty four years from now.
