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.

Well boys & girls, the title says it all.

Which movie shows a Leica M4-P with a special hybrid RF/Zoom/SLR finder be found?

The movie star does a good job acting as a photog - except the special effects jerks and the not too attentive director and editor destroyed photographic credibility.

Some things are just too priceless to be made up !

They must've used a M4P cause it's the quintessential camera-looking camera. But a zoom and SLR finder ?? How would that even work?

I have no idea of the movie, but I'll be curious to find out.

Can't guess the movie either but I saw a t-shirt last week with an M6 on the front with a burst of flash coming from the viewfinder :/

OK, this is a very obscure movie,

BAD NYC serial murderer movie mystery with a miserable script and sickening horror film death scenes

GOOD with the protagonist hero photographer prominently shooting a Leica M4-P

GREAT well done photography by the DP Jonathan Sela
its like he decided "this may be a crap movie, but I'm doing a great job"

BAD believe it or not, the hero's view thru the M4-P is alternately shown by
a) correctly with framelines and RF image
b) zooming in
c) SLR type focusing

How did b & c pass final edit? someone was asleep approving final cut

BAD the horror film executions will be sickening to many - but it IS a horror film afterall

You can probably find this gem on Amazon Prime and Netflix, among other film channels

THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN (2008)

Director Ryuhei Kitamura

Staring Bradley Cooper, Leslie Bibb, Brooke Shields, Vinnie Jones
