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.

Leica on TV show...

Just thought I would mention that there is a chrome body Leica (M3?) being used throughout by a kid on the Hallmark channel at the moment...the movie is called "Silver Bells"...it is a Christmas themed movie.

Wonder what other TV shows are around with Leicas or Nikons or other RF's?
Peace, Love and Happiness...

Charles Bronson starred in a series called " Man With a Camera" in 1958 to 1960.
He played the part of a Leica M3 toting photographer named Mike Kovac.

The episode of "Cold Case" that aired this week featured the Leica IIIC prominently.

D.B. Sweeney in a short lived tv series "Strange Luck" used Leica Ms which he carried in his coat pockets. As I recall, it was a good little show and I enjoyed the photographer 'hero' role he played.

possibly a re-run, but the detective clearly mentions it's a IIIa?

Interesting. Even back in the '50s Leica street shooters were causing and getting in trouble
