    New Blad with amazingly bright viewfinder!?

    Just saw this amusing short ad on TV here today. The viewfinder on her Blad looks a lot brighter than mine, but I'm not sure what she is doing with the film advance...

    They put a TV in the camera!
    The kid's holding the camera in that shot. I think he's focusing using the wind crank. Note the small lettering on the viewfinder image-"use only as directed". I guess what the director directs goes.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    You're right - I clearly wasn't paying attention! I guess he could be fiddling with the wind crank just because little kids like fiddling with stuff

    I think he just tried to hold the camera and found the free 'play' that the wind crank has.
    With his left hand holding the camera, the right hand on the crank, the model in front of the camera, we have to assume it was the hand of god that adjusted focus on the lens.

    Would not the entire world look a lot brighter with such a lady on your side
