    He probably still has it Snegron, I heard a recent radio interview with him, he said he still has every musical instrument he ever owned he's probably the same with cameras, or maybe he gave it to his daughter Heather who is a pro photographer.

    Fun: What's Paul carrying?

    Can you tell? Text with the photo should help:

    "Paul McCartney, followed by Ringo Starr and John Lennon of the Beatles, arrive by plane at San Francisco International Airport on August 29, 1966. The four-member British band was set to perform that night at Candlestick Park—a concert that would prove historic, as it turned out to be the last time the Beatles ever performed live together."

    That's not the last time the Beatles performed live together. They played a live set from the roof top of Apple studios on 30 January, 1969, which is the last time they played together for an audience. Candlestick Park 1966 was their last booked concert.

    From eight years ago -- the linked photo in the original post is gone, but it was the same picture:

    Maybe we'll get different answers eight years later!

    I believe that he is carrying a Pentax S1a. Pentax gave the Beatles the cameras, and they used them quite often. If you watch the part of the Anthology dvd set where Paul talks about visiting Miami for the first time he mentions they all carried their Pentax cameras with them. I have a Pentax SV and the only difference (besides mine being chrome) is that the SV has a self timer and I don't think the S1a does.

    Interesting article on what may have been George's Pentax selling on auction:
