    Miss Fisher's Murder mysteries...

    Several months after being mildly annoyed at the use of flashbulbs in the first series of 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries' on the ABC (not invented 'till 1930), I was emailed by the script supervisor of series 2 (who I did a media studies degree at uni with, and is of course a facebook friend) for photographic/period advice. Finally, an outlet for all that useless, family-annoying accumulated knowledge!!! I wrote the poor lass a VERY long email about small plate cameras (for one episode) and professional (natural light) portrait studios (for another episode). I felt really pleased/smug.

    It'll be interesting to see whether they've taken any of this slightly over-enthusiastic research onboard when series 2 starts this Friday: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/mi...der-mysteries/

    Well done, Marc. Too bad I sold my Ernemann folding camera from 1926 with an Ernostar 1.8/85mm lens. Would have been a nice prop.

    That's awesome! Thank you for enlightening the ill-informed.

    I'm almost tempted to watch the latest underbelly series. Saw a few clips with Crown/Speed Graphics in the ads on tv.

    Of course anyone wanting to add some filmic appeal would find a flash would look much better than a shutter click? Pedants (in anoraks?) do plague film makers, but don't let me stop you.

    They LOVE it! They emailed me twice with questions :-)

    Glad to hear that your knowledge and generosity with it and your time are appreciated It's always nice to know you've been heard, yes?
    I hope they continue to make use of your expertise. New sideline career for you, perhaps?

    Series 1 is on DVD in the US and is absolutely delightful. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys such crime capers. General all-around irreverence, Phryne and her flakey side-kicks (including a butler named Butler!).

    The camera looks vaguely like an old folder that could fit in the time, but yes, the bulbs and apparent shutter sync are definitely an anachronism.

    Anyhow, thanks Aus for some enjoyable programming. I breathlessly anticipate the next series.

    Thanks, munz6869, for the tip. Something out of the ordinary to watch, while I'm waiting for the "IT Crowd" final episode at the end of September...
