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.

How to sell... With a camera

May I suggest this thread for ads which include cameras as props.

This just arrived in my mailbox from a very secret retailer.

Looks like a recipe for selling things nowadays: To sell ___, just include ___ in the shot.

Hey, my Petri 7s didn't come with one of those.
I must be shopping in the wrong part of town.

Looks like a good way to advertise an old camera.

In photo.net there's a thread (in the Leica section) of a similarly clad young lady holding a Leica M7 with a 28mm Elmarit ASPH.
Victoria's Secret seems to be doing a series with film cameras.

Unfortunately, the baseplate on the M7 is loose. The photographer should have been more careful with the details, but he could have been distracted....

My first NEW camera, didn't have it long so I bought another one recently (just for fun). The new/old one Petri was in perfect condition, I have never seen something that old that was so perfect. Maybe that's why they used it in this ad. All of maybe were not used much: I-2 rolls then in the drawer.

Yes, there is one of these stores across the street from my job with the m7 picture on one of their windows. I'm thinking of trying to contact the model, being that we both have the same kit and all....
