Photographers lining up to capture the best moments on the red carpet.
A fashion spread featuring a Rolleiflex and what looks like a Kodak Retina rangefinder camera.

A couple of Nikon F cameras in the brilliant 1974 movie, “The Conversation.”
One of them has an “action finder”. They are both fitted with a motor drive.
Another look at that copy camera in Doctor Who “The Crimson Horror” (2013).
A really interesting camera; evidently a whole plate copy camera. What I can’t quite work out is the panel on the side. Is it a a ground glass? Reflex focussing perhaps? It would be useful in a camera mounted in this manner.

In the 2001 movie “Iris”, the story of novelist Iris Murdoch, we see this Nikon F4.
The F4 was the first pro Nikon SLR to have autofocus. Interestingly, it was also the first to have no manual film advance lever.

Vale Horst Faas, 1933-2013.
A very fine war photographer left the earth yesterday.
Horst Faas is pictured with his beloved Leicas, M3 and possibly an M2.
Further reading and some of his photography - here.
From russia with love (1963) mock up TLR camera
Don’t let the image fool you. In the film, this is a voice recorder disguised as a TLR camera. It is not certain if the prop used at the movie was also fake or a real TLR.
It sure looks like a real Rolleiflex. It’s probably easier to use a real one that make a prop.
Yashica Electro 35 in “The Amazing Spiderman” (2012).
Nice to see that a superhero shoots with a rangefiinder.
I just realised this is a double post of sorts. Previously posted as an animated GIF file - http://tmblr.co/ZJ_sxwWbJCpg
