    I think he used more than one specific camera, for instance here he is a pitch man
    for a B&J Press

    http://www.kpraslowicz.com/2009/10/0...-press-manual/
    But at the same time here he is using a Speedgraphic

    Edit;and no fedora either!!!

    There is a book in our local library which shows him taking shots on film set using a Rolleiflex with a soundproof housing which he made himself.

    I think it's this picture: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...and_weegee.jpg

    "Weegee showing an old Rolleiflex to Kubrick on the set of Dr Strangelove."

    Camera came, now I need------

    The camera arrived today & it's even better looking than the pictures! Lens is clear, shutter seems fine, everything works as it should. NOW - What do I look for in a flash? The lens has the bi-pin connection, and the rangefinder has a metal plate that extends a bit beyond the rangefinder body. I assume this is where a flash would mount? Would a Graflite flash mount there? I'm thinking a flash using bulbs would be the way to go.

    Yup using bulbs is downright FUN!and the punch they pack can be surprising
    Having said that, most of the time I use old Honeywell Strobonars,a 65A and a couple of 600's because the flash bulbs tend to be costly

    here is a link to a "bulb" picture I've posted in some other thread on APUG

    Awesome. If you're gonna do the fedora, you gotta get these as well.
