    Ringo's camera in 1968

    "New" photographs of the Beatles back in the day -- see photo 18, looks to me that Ringo is holding a Nikkormat FTN. The chrome area near the shutter speed ring looks larger than I'd expect, though perhaps the lens itself (which I can't identify) had a chrome mount.

    Isn't Ringo known to be into photography? Also Linda McCartney had at least one book of images published and wasn't she also related to George Eastman?

    I think it just looks that way due it being brighter. Behind it is the aperture ring, which being dark, looks smaller.


    Nice pictures of unguarded moments.
    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.

    Linda was a professional photographer but had nothing to do with George Eastman.
    Her dad was the attorney Lee Eastman.

    I think he just has the 1.4/50 with a lens hood on it. The Hillman Imp in the background is interesting too.
