    Hmm a real puzzle. With that lens surround it should be, but rangefinder housing looks wrong.

    Whatever it is, he's been told to look at the screen on back of it :)

    If it is a SP, you could be seeing his shirt and tie through the viewfinder. Othewise that could be an optical illusion (this is B/W film via Telecine on an LCD TV into a Panasonic TZ70) and it's actually a S2. The black would then be the viewfinder and the white, burnt out chrome.

    I'll go with S2.

    Zombie thread time... :eek:

    Leafing through my copy of the ISIHAC book (discovered while tidying up), I noticed this pic illustrating the "Bad Advice for Tourists" item (pages 80-81):
    Yashica and Olympus rangefinder compacts, I think.

    Speaking of zombies: one film that died a very expensive death was "Smashing Time", a farce based on the Swinging Sixties and the astonishingly successful "Blowup". Whereas the latter made sales of 10 times its cost, "Smashing Time" made back less than half its budget. As in "Blowup", cameras featured heavily...

    Well, he's not going to get up in hurry with two Nikons round his neck, is he?

    I think Steve is right with his rangefinder IDs - the back one is definitely an Oly, I'd guess a 35RC, but there were a few similar ones.

    The front one looks like a Yashica Electro 35.

    Looks lovely that, could be brand new by the look of it. Shame about the modern lens cap.
