Movies / Cameras in the Movies / TV / Media If you are a photographer, it's difficult not to appreciate movies too. In this forum you can discuss movies, as well as the cameras used in them. What camera used in what film / TV show etc has long been a topic of discussion at RFF. Whether the Exakta and 400mm Kilfitt lens in Hitchcock's Rear Window or the Nikons in Eastwood's Bridges of Madison County, cameras are tools which reflect the time and technology of the film.

PBS Street Photo Bit.

Last summer I got contact by a PBS station about doing a bit on my street work. It finally got edited and aired in my area last night, and will air statewide in Minnesota next week.

For everyone else, here is a link to it on my website, or directly on youtube. Some Fuji 6x9 Rangefinder action in the footage. Enjoy.

Wonderful photos and an entertaining video.

I assume you use flash on the Fuji 6x9 so that you can use a small enough aperture for increased depth of field ? They're not exactly easy to focus quickly !

I also thought you did really well with balancing the flash fill with the ambient light - It didn't look too "unnatural".

The bonus is that with those 2 Fuji's around your neck, i'm guessing no gym membership would ever be required (maybe the occasional visit to the chiropractor though) !

Outstanding ... and I love the glimpses of Duluth. I've never been there, but you live on the bestest lake in the world.

Not really, I use flash because I love the look of fill light in the day. Try to stay between f/8 & f/11. Everything being in focus bores me.

Then I'm even MORE impressed with your skill - f8 doesn't give you much leeway for focus being a bit off - and you seem to have a fair few "moving targets" in there ... I'm going to have to take mine out and actually PRACTISE I think, maybe even by trying to take actual photos, God Forbid !!

Having shot a Fuji and seeing how fast you use those cameras, I have to say I am totally impressed. Are you shooting the GSW most of the time? You're able to fire that thing off really quickly. It's pretty crazy.

Nice work too!
