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.

Polly Perkins - Sky Captain and the world of Tomorrow

What is the camera she used? It looks really close to an old Argus Rangefinder that I have but its a little different. Maybe a different model? Anyone know?



I think this is it, funny I think they inverted the image for the poster.

It's just the Argus "Brick" C3. In the movie it's the right way round:



In the poster it even says "RANGE FINDER" in mirror type.

I think the frame counter was enhanced for the needs of the movie.

(OT: There is Polly Perkins - and we talk about that brick?! Maybe we have a serious problem;-)

The brick also got used in Harry Potter movie(s) too, I believe. It strikes a design chord for both futurism and magic!
