    Identify this camera?

    Can anyone identify this camera being used by Lou Reed?

    Looks like an X-Pan, but it's hard to tell for sure. Good for Lou.

    I think it's a Canon G series d**tal. Looks a lot like a real rangefinder.

    It's not a G series Canon; it has a square lens shade and his finger is in the wrong place for the shutter button and he is looking through the viewfinder in the wrong place.

    According to the article he likes the Leica M9 and S2.

    Would his left hand be on the lens like that? It looks to me like he's focussing manually---the G series lenses don't have a focus ring, do they?

    Unless he has really immense hands, I think it's a 35mm rangefinder of some sort.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Voigtlander R2C. That's my bet for sure. Something like this http://www.cameraquest.com/voigt_r2s_r2c.htm

    Anyone else notice that this was GumPhoto's first post, after registering six years ago?

    That's no small feat to even remember a password for that long!

    We are all silly to even care... go take some photos (it's not a voitlander..!)

    The article in The Independent posted above is a good read.

    I know this is a "democratic" site... but sick of all the "come lately" people that have shot a few dozen roll of film weighing in on everything when it's obvious they don't know much.

    I have turned into one of the senior grouches on this site... I've shot/used more than $200,000 in consumables silver halide films in my life... and the equipment I use is worth many times what the cars I drive it around in is worth.
