    You are a stickler for detail;-)

    I am also a collector of watches and it is the same thing in films. I recently watched The American and his Speedmaster beeps ;-)



     
  2. I'd have to agree about the Canon FX. The shape of the pentaprism with that flat front face shouts classic Canon to me. There's a good pic of one here:

    In his private darkroom he does an enlargement by projecting onto paper on the ground and processing by sponge with the paper on a board standing upright in the tray:

    "How's your smile?" Colloquially saying "let's see your smile!" (an extremely loose translation that gives the intent rather than the literal translation of the words). Additionally, by saying у вас rather than у тебя, the request is directed in the plural rather than to one person. Technically, it could be a single person treated with an honorific but, considering the situation, that is unlikely.

    Yes, I evaded from the literal translation as it seemed awkward in English and mine seemingly was closer to the meaning, seen the content of movie being about an amateur photographer doing portraits, where a rather reserved girl, the protagonist is after, at the closing scene as sitter in a studio finally smiles...

    Anyway,I put the movie up as it shows cameras we likely never see again in a movie...

    While its not an old movie, the trailer to the current film, "Welcome to Merwin" shows a Pentax SLR, probably a Spotmatic, although I couldn't be sure. Fine choice of camera!

    That's a Spotmatic II, a fine camera indeed. Great find :smile:
    I'm definitively going to watch this movie.

    Rambo (First Blood part 2), while he's preparing for the mission he loads HP5 into a motor driven Nikon (I'm guessing an F3?). Interesting as loading a roll of film can become a ritual in itself:

    I've been watching the commercials, looks like a great movie. I still not sure that the camera is a regular Spotmatic with a clip on cold shoe?? I think you are correct, I don't see a meter switch above his left thumb, and there would need to be 2 flash sync sockets, which would be obscured in this shot.

    Probably will be 100,000 camera nerds that go just for the camera.

    Yes, an F3. What's odd is that the "leather" appears to be peeling off the top of the prism head.

    Also, the serial number may just be readable if the film is single stepped (if one can do that), in which case that particular camera becomes a collector's item.

    Here's another angle.

    PS: Hushh hushh for the moment they still believe it's a K1000.

    It bugs me that he doesn't have the period-correct lens on that camera.

    You got it! The lens looks like a SMC Takumar 55 mm 1.8 so that fits as well. We will overlook the minimum focus distance :smile:

    Yeah, viewfinder is fiction, along with depth of field. Who cares, it looks like a great movie. :smile:
