    I would love to see this foreign film called Everlasting Moments. I've been mesmerized by the camera the woman is using. Does anyone know what kind of camera it is? I'm assuming it's in the medium format family as it looks like it takes 120 roll film. Check out the video on the cite I've included. Thank you kindly.

    the smaller one looks like a cocarette 6x9, just the bottom side showed.

    Not sure about the camera, but the film is in Swedish.

    I believe in the U.S. and Canada it has English sub-titles.

    Thanks everyone for your great help. I too feel it's a folding camera, such as a Cocarette 6x9. I was just curious, as it baffled me.

    It has already been shown in theatres, last year I believe. I was disappointed that I missed it. I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD.

    It was originally shot in Swedish, so I'd imagine you could get it in it's original language.

    I saw the film a few months ago and in some of the descriptions I read about the movie a Contessa camera was mentioned. Could this mean that one of the cameras on the list of the following link is the camera in question? http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Contessa-Nettel

    The movie was pretty good and I loved the lighting & photography throughout the film.

    Thanks Marc, if a Contessa camera was mentioned, it must be the one she used.

    I hope to see the movie too.

    The camera is marked Contessa. I searched for a bit, but was never able to find the specific model. I have the movie, so I did what I could. I freeze-framed it, zoomed in and looked very closely.

    I'll check it out again.

    It's not a Zeiss-Ikon camera, and I could only guess that it was from Contessa-Nettel or perhaps even Drexler-Nagel.

    The key is to look for the name on the lens. I'll have to have another look.

    You are so kind to do that. I truly appreciate your help.
    The information you provided is quite sufficient thank you so very much.
    BTW: Is the movie out on DVD or video now?
