Cameras in the Movies / TV / Media If you are a photographer, it's difficult not to appreciate movies too. In this forum you can discuss movies, as well as the cameras used in them. What camera used in what film / TV show etc has long been a topic of discussion at RFF. Whether the Exakta and 400mm Kilfitt lens in Hitchcock's Rear Window or the Nikons in Eastwood's Bridges of Madison County, cameras are tools which reflect the time and technology of the film.

A short film: Life of a camera

I found this short video by Andrew Saladino where we see what the 35mm Yamasheta has seen during all his life, included quotes by Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese.

Hope you'll enjoy it!

robert

I would buy the 35mm Yamasheta camera in heartbeat if it would transport me to 1950s America.

Thanks for the head's up on the video, Robert.

Yes! Such good memories and the people I miss so much.

How different things would be if we did not have old family photos...

I'd never heard of that camera. Was it around back in the 1950s?

The history of these cameras... I don't know.

But this shows what one can expect for a $10 camera!

Quite interesting!

Just goes to show that meaningful photos can be made with most anything. We just need to go out and shoot!

Some great photos Dave! I can imagine to go out with a Leica hanging from a shoulder and the Yamasheta from the other...a good combo
robert
PS: ok, I have no Yamasheta but sometimes I do it with my Holga!

It's a really nice conceptual film, but plays fast and loose with facts. Like the fact that most of the photos were not actually taken with that camera.

I enjoyed the film, but am so technically oriented that it bothered me, all the inconsistencies. At the base, a video camera did all the work, and a no-name, ok, Yamasheta, camera was the star. Then family snapshots from mid-century probably taken on a Brownie. I would have been better satisfied if the star camera was a Brownie, and the video moved slower.

I'm the wrong audience.
