    Good work! That movie is hilarious. I'm gonna have to look for a 1971 Canonet 28 with 40/2.8 lens on eBay. But not a Nikon!

    I tried keeping my Aires 35 III L in my glove compartment the way he did in the movie and ended up having to pay for having the grease cleaned off of the shutter blades. I learned a valuable lesson about keeping a camera in a hot car.

    Re: "Bridges of Madison County", the real eye-candy are the Nikon RF cameras he uses and leaves behind -- Cameraquest discusses those, too. To the list I'd add Jack Nicholson in "Chinatown" using a screw-mount Leica to take surveillance photos of Faye Dunaway's sister/daughter. And in terms of classic Japanese cameras, "Mothra" has all sorts of newspaper photogs waving around some interesting cameras.

    I hate to double-post, but -- through sheer synchronisity, I was flipping through movie channels and hit Ghostbusters II at exactly the moment Bill Murray whips out a Brooks Veriwide and starts taking picture after picture -- unfortunately, without ever advancing the film. I guess the prop guys chose a Veriwide because it fit with the Ghostbusters aesthetic.

    That happens a lot, most prop guys don't seem to know how cameras work, I see it a lot on set
