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.

Dufaycolor, only one feature film used this process.

I was watching an old colour movie today and noticed it used a colour process called Dufaycolor, it was called Sons of the Sea and was made in 1939 just months before the start of WW2. Unfortunately this version was digitally remastered so I wasn't able to see how the colours originally looked. A comment on IMDB by someone who saw it in 1940 said that the colours were vibrant. This movie was the only feature film to be made in Dufaycolor, WW2 put a stop to future use.

If anyone is interested there is more information on this process on Wikipedia and on IMDB
