    One of my documentary photo instructors took a photo with one of these in a N. Korean court that was trying a few U.S. soldiers. He had it hidden in a pack of Korean cigs. It got printed as a full page photo in Sturm magazine. He still has it and I got to fiddle with it a bit. They are very cool little cameras.

    Your friend was VERY lucky. If he had been caught it wouldn't have been pretty.

    To his slight credit, he did have a press credential to be in the courtroom, just not to take pictures. It was some time in the '70's, I believe. Apparently a Korean detective who had been keeping his eye on my instructor came up to him outside the courtroom and asked if he could have a cigarette. My instructor had luckily thought to have an extra pack of the same brand full of cigs.

    He used the story to introduce our "hidden camera" assignment, in which he had to try to provide an inside look of a place or "scene" that was not open to photography, by devising a way to disguise our camera with something that would not seem out of place in the environment. We didn't have the luxury of using one of these very applicable Tessinas in a box of cigs, but some of the photos turned in by the students were really good. For mine, I shot a life drawing warehouse gathering. I cut a hole in the side of an art supply toolbox and bolted my F-1 Canon to the bottom of the box. I mounted a pre-focused 17mm lens and took off the prism. I cut holes in the trays so I could move all the pencils and junk aside and see the ground glass, and I drilled another hole so I could hit the shutter and move the advance lever with a pencil. I brought a sketch pad and would draw in between pix. The parties had in the past been very crowded, but this one was almost empty, so I felt like I was sticking out like a sore thumb. I passed the assignment, though. I have not used the toolbox disguise since, though I still have it somewhere.

    At any rate, sorry to distract; these are really neat cameras, folks! Someone should really buy this.
