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.

On top of a BF-109E I might add.

The Messerschmits and Focke-Wulfs generally were equipped with Robot II cameras as gun cameras or the BSK-16 film cameras in the wing instead of this 'pod'.
