    What 35mm Camera Was Used In...?

    What 35mm Camera was used by Claire Fischer in the HBO series "Six Feet Under"? I have googled for ages, but keep coming up with no answer.

    Anyone? My personal guess is that she uses a Nikon manual model....

    Her camera is shown in several episodes, but I can't get close enough to it to make a determination...

    Often the name of a camera used in a film is blacked out with black tape.

    Yeah, but with most common cameras [nikon F series or Canon pro EOS] its obvious from the body styling.

    Silver Glow, do you have any screen captures? I couldn't find any online. By the way, according to HBO the name is spelled Fisher - http://www.hbo.com/sixfeetunder/cast...e_fisher.shtml - but I didn't find anything on Google with that spelling, either.

    Pentax k1000 easy you can read it right there.
    That reminds me of the nikons all over Dennis Hopper's body in Apocalypse now.
