    Unsurprisingly, there's lots in the 2020 Firstcall Photographic catalogue.

    Freeview Talking Pictures channel: in a really bad sub-Hammer British Sci-Fi effort from the early 1960s one of the extras had a Hasselblad on a tripod. Being an extra he was allowed to know how to use it correctly! :D

    In the current ep newsletter, there is a picture of another anonymised film job. Don't recognise it. Nikon?
    Here it is on their site:

    A character in an episode of "Taggart" that we watched last night was using an Argus C3. I reckon that someone thought it would fit better with the plot line (about pictures being taken on film) than a SLR that might be mistaken for a dSLR.

    Such attention to detail would have been admirable if the denouement hadn't centred around one character taunting another by showing them a roll of 120 film allegedly exposed in the C3... :confused:

    The latest Jessops ad on Fartbook has an anonymised late Zenit (11 or 12, I think) and a Praktica MTL3 or 5 in it. I'm not that sad, honest, I recognised them from my own shelves...

    Popped out to our local hardware store (one wonders how long it will last now we have a Screwfix...) and was distracted from my porpoise by a chap carrying Nikon F5 with a 105mm Ai-S lens. We had a good jaw, as I had the D200 with a 28mm Ai-S on it with me (taking photos of holes in the road for the local archaeology group, would you believe?)

    Once again popping up on Fartbook. They've abandoned the Kiev, and now it's a Hassie.

    From the latest ephotozine newsletter and in the article it advertises.
    A rotten thing to do to a nice old Bierette.

    I think I had the Boots version of that model; my girlfriend at the time bought it me to replace the previous model that was stolen from her car.

    I had the Boots version too, lovely little camera, my first 35mm camera.

    And in today's Observer New Review - an article on photographing men and the meaning of masculinity and so...
    Not in the online version so did a quick scan of the dead tree version. And yes, the printed image IS flipped. Canon A of some sort?

    Surely that's Polaroid's latest model? :)

    Could have sworn I posted this two nights ago but hey... Spotted whilst wandering around Wallingford in December with Footloose.

    On ITV3, an old 'Heartbeat' episode called 'Give Peace a Chance', there was a press tog using a Nikon F with the original Photomic head and I think, a f1.4 50mm lens

    From a recent Flickr e-mail about this year's photwalk:
    I think it's a film camera - he looks like the sort of trendy young 'erbert who'd prefer film - a Fed of some sort?

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Much older looking lenses on both. Both seen better days. Junk shop "props"?

    It looks like a Fed 5. I always thought the Feds were an aquired taste but I found the 5 a taste I couldn't bring myself to aquire!

    A frame from a documentary on the Freeview "Yesterday" channel. The narration implied that the scene was shot during WWII but the camera at extreme left looks awfully like a Nikon SP to me (introduced in 1957). The FH triangle (bottom right) appeared on the Rolleicord III in 1951 according to "The Rollei Manual".

    Documentary makers and accuracy, eh? ;)
