More cameras from Bang-Bang Club.
So – I managed to watch The Bang-Bang Club. I don’t recommend it. BUt it did have a lot of cameras in it, being as it is about the exploits of a group of photo-journalists in Johannesburg during the early 90′s. The story starts with a rookie free-lancer roaming around Soweto looking for trouble. Another photographer gives him some good advice – “Lose the long lens; get close.” Soon he is seen shooting some horrific scenes with his trusty old Nikkormat. He sells the photos to the newspaper and buys a new camera, a more modern Nikon which seems to give him a lot more cred with the other photographers. Frankly I preferred the Nikkormat.
