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.

Yes, I do watch TV. I never heard of Stranger Things or watched a single minute of it. Your comment prompted me to search; I see the programme is on Netflix. I don’t subscribe to Netflix.
Ok so you don't go to the movies, and have not seen a very popular show so do not know of this very famous multi award winning actress that is in a fun commercial that prominently features a Leica film camera.

I have had a crush on WR since the '90's. I enjoyed this video, so thanks to the OP for posting. (The 3-minute version is a lot more fun than the 30-second version.)

I think of WR as a big star, but considering how she was banished from Hollywood, it's easy to imagine that someone who didn't watch American films in the '90's wouldn't know her.

"Stranger Things" has some fun portrayals of photography (1st season) and video (2nd season) in the '80s. To me, someone who grew up in 1980's America, the show seems pretty authentic (apart from the interdimensional monsters, but even that is kind of a commentary on America in the '80's). It's pretty much the only television I've watched in the last 2 years.

I don't actually like WR on "Stranger Things," though.

Anyway...

Only questions I have is whether she is an amateur photographer who likes older film cameras and also whether the camera would need to be winterized (lubricants for cold weather).

Nikon Professional Services would do this for photojournalists.

As for the woman, I know her name, but know nothing about her - nothing at all. I haven't watched movies in over 20 years nor do I watch movies on TV.

I'm surprised she's not using the Stranger Things polaroid camera in the commercial

Correct. Nevertheless I'd be grateful for a link to the Leica advert you mention, as I haven't seen it.

More like 35. I agree, she has a large body of work and people almost have to have been living in a monastery or a cult to not know who she is lol...

This thread has become ridiculous... commenting on how she holds the camera, and not wearing her strap around her neck? (I do that all the time btw).

I can't believe some are so critical and picking this apart like we have nothing better to do. I bet Winona could care less what we all think, just sayin.

This exactly... I was the age of these characters (kids) in the time setting of the show, so it really hits home and is brings back memories.

I enjoyed the Super Bowl game (less the half-time crap) but never saw the SquareSpace ad with Winona. Did anyone see the ad on TV yesterday?

Yes. The only reason I recognized her is because of fuzz about her here.
Commercial was very weak. Most of commercials were gift-less fiasco yesterday. Never seen them to be this bad.
Half show was aging fat, fresh botox, winkie shake cheap bordello meh. One needs weight loss program, another needs to retire.

But game it self was amazing. And no photogs with Leica, mirrorless .

Thanks for the link. There’s probably only one thing that is quite disturbing - THAT shutter sound

I tend to think she regarded the camera as just another prop. It could have been an M3 or a cardboard camera; to her it was the same.

I'm not on paid show, nor I shake my winkie in public.
But just in case, sometimes they call me as Russian bear.

I believe the majority of photographers (incl. me) take Pictures the way she does one eye closed it's easier to Focus that way, the way she holds the camera is also the same way the majority of non pro photographers hold cameras.
I also have to admit that I am a huge Winona Ryder Fan, one of the very few actresses in Hollywood who can actually act.

Thank you for the link, much appreciated, MaZo.

At last I get to meet the famous Winona from Winona. I approve! Rather a sweet, humorous, inoffensive piece of twaddle and far better than many full-length programmes.

If they were paid for what they do purely based on their looks or age that would be pretty bad case of misogyny, sexism and ageism.

Wonder which it is and who were the photographers involved.
I saw this too and have to wonder if it is not more a curation than a solo book. There are a number of images that look a bit too perfect for a collapsable Summicron.

Maybe that's just the way she shoots. Still not clear about the authorship of the book and what camera(s) were used. Film stock looks like Portra.

I admit I had nothing better to do. Also, since I'm sure she can afford it, she should try a Mamiya 7 II instead.

Just kidding... it's cool she was out there with the M3. Just curious whether she's an amateur photographer or not.

I thought the commercial was just a funny ad for Squarespace. But on the web site

https://www.welcometowinona.com

it says that Winona Ryder took all the pictures and actually created the web site. Amazing!

Did anyone score one of her books (limited to 100 copies)?

Yes, but check the Welcometowinona website, where the credit says "creative directed by...".

My guess is some of the pics are hers some from the "team" that Squarespace claims to have sent to the town.

Neat video. Only here would someone complain that she is not holding the camera correctly. Come on! There might be other photographers out there who like to use old film cameras or even old Leicas who are not on this forum. It appears that some of the comments here have trouble with that.
