Need more information.

Does it have the Bell & Howell label?
What is the model number?
Who is selling this camera? Bell & Howell or someone else.

You should be cautious.

I have seen and add like this a while ago in the magazines but I can't remember all the specs and doing an online searched produced no 6 megapixel camera by Bell and Howell. If I remember right this add sounded too good to be true and I wonder if there is any tech support for it?

This appears to be another of those cameras from Taiwan.

They have been popping up on ebay and surplus sites.

They are incorrectly advertised and overpriced.

It is not a "Bell & Howell" camera.

They are playing games with the name.

If you want a good low cost digital camera, take a look at the Canon A400.
