    Can anyone identify the camera William Eggleston is using in the opening seconds of this segment?

    I am looking for a relatively inexpensive but hand-holdable MF. It looks like some kind of old rangefinder.

    Thanks!

    It's a Mamiya 2x3 rangefinder camera. It used interchangeable lenses, roll film backs and sheet film holders and is no longer in production.

    Mamiya Universal was what he used.
