    I think it's funny. At least it's a plug for film. Fumbling to rip a mem card out of a digicam wouldn't be as dramatic. :surprised:)

    Lame and painfully tone deaf: when did the paparazzi last shoot film? Guess Gramps wasn't in an open carry state.

    I didn't find it offensive, but what's the reality that chick would recognize a film camera, and know how to open it?

    I think its a sad but somewhat realistic commentary on the I'm important and your not attitude that so many people have now days.
    I also belong to the "she would have been eating that damn cellphone" school of thought

    Speaking of recognizing a film camera... what model rangefinder was that? I was thinking Canonet, but I'm not at all sure.

    I think it's either a Canonet or a Konica Auto S.

    He looks more like a clown with an RZ67. Still a clown.

    My vote is for a Yashica minister - but at least it was a plug for film.

    Shame it was 'old people use film - young people use Walmart phones'
    but most of the comments on youtube were 'poor old guy, what a bitch!', so I guess it is also 'Nice folks use film, bitches use digital' ;-)

    Yashica electro 35?

    There is nothing offensive about it, or am I missing something?

    I changed my mind. The chrome lens means neither of the above. I think Yaahica Electro GSN.
