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.

Just watched Paul Burdis' "The Wee Man"--Amazon has it as "Gangster"--and right around 1:38 there is a scene where The lead character is talking to the press on the doorsteps of a court house. One of the photographers is using some variant of this:


Seeing that as a prop definitely took me out of the movie.

Was watching "Walter Mitty" with Ben Stiller a couple of days ago. A one point, Sean Penn, playing a photojournalist for LIFE magazine, is seen shooting snow leopards in the Himalayas with a Nikon F3/T. The funny part was it is a silver model and the word "Nikon" is covered with gaffer tape. But the close shots of Penn and the camera show the "F3/T" very clearly! I guess Nikon wasn't willing to fork over enough cash to get them to leave off the tape!
Yashica Electro35 GS, Fujifilm X100S, TCL-X100, WCL-X100, sold everything else!

In the anime series "The Eccentric Family", the main character Yasaburou occasionally uses what is obviously a Voigtlander Vitessa L, which also features prominently in the second season opening credits.

Just watching Ghost Busters 2 and Bill Murray uses a Brooks Veriwide for some reason. Of course he's clicking away as though it's a point-and-shoot.

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (ヨコハマ買い出し紀行) is a japanese Anime-Series after a very nice Manga. A Camera does play a very central role in this, although, it is not a real camera. But many thoughts of the main character circle around the "right" moment to take a picture and what is worth of being photographed.

Very nice, if one likes the silent mood of the series.

Watching it now and I'd love to know what strap she's using.
