    This is a picture of Dick Proenneke who went up to Alaska and built a cabin on Twin Lakes.

    Just wondering if anybody can decipher what camera kit he is using. The image was from right around 1978.

    Maybe a Canon AE1? with something like the 400mm f2.8L? Pure guess though!

    the main curiosity is why you ask... just general interest or with a specific reason?
    Cheers,

    Jim.

    Just general Interest. I'm getting ready to go to Alaska only a hundred ish miles away from where he lived. Im just interested in what he used becuase it worked great for him.

    If it's in Alaska, I'd guess he'd go with a camera which doesn't need batteries.

    that lens has a really strange look; it's the right size to be a 300/2.8- maybe the Nikon K preset model?

    I'm not thinking its a Nikon. I went through all the older lenses and none look like that. All the 200 and up lenses either are not that big in diameter or have a huge front element with a straight hood.

    That prism on the body also doesn't look Nikon - it has a Pentax-y feel to it. Or perhaps something more obscure?
