    A few more cameras for you - a poor scan of a photo I took during a Helen Lederer photoshoot at the Edinburgh Book Festival in 2001.

    You've posted that one before, Alan. Maybe in 2001, though. ;)

    I was watching DC'S Legends of Tomorrow, Season 3 Episode 7 'Welcome to the Jungle' yesterday evening. In case you don't know the programme, there's time travel and superheroes and so forth....

    Anyway. The episode was set in Viet Nam in 1969 and one of the time travellers was under cover as a journalist - complete with his 1984 Nikon FG-20!!!!

    How hard could it have been to find a Nikon F?

    Cheers, Jeff

    Repeat of "Endevour" this weekendt: Nikon F with a proper non-TTL meter prism and (I think) a 105mm lens plus a Rolleiflex. My life is very sad by some peoples' standards. :cool:

    If you'd spotted it during filming I'd have wondered if it was a prop, or my mate Nas using it...

    There's one on some current Sainsburys bumf - I must pick a copy up - looks like a Russian Leica-alike, but I'm blowed if I can tell which one. It's got a circular rangefinder window... aha, Gurgle tells me it could be a Fed3!

    So does the FED 2, a camera I enjoy vastly more than anything about it might suggest.

    The one in the middle is a bit phallic.

    Ooer, so it is, matron!

    I can see I'm going to have to visit Sanebunnys just to sort out which camera it is... I have to say that I enjoy my Zenit far more than I should, possibly because it's quite technologically advanced and ergonomic. Well, compared to many of my collection... Mind you, almost anything is ergonomic after the Argus C3.

    The FED 2 is largely because it's rather stripped down - I really don't like the FED 4, it's heavy and clumsy, but the 2 is very simple.

    There are a few in Last of the Summer Wine - a 120 folder used for macro/serious close-up at 30cms, a Kodak 127 Brownie-ish thing, possibly a Spotmatic which transmogrified into one of those £5 imitation plastic slr's.

    IF this digital Zenit really exists (and I'm not yet convinced that it does) where will the market be?

    Oh look, here's another! https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather

    If I get a mo I'll scan the Beau Brownie pic in yesterday's Evening Standard. Somewhat less gratuitous as it's with a short on the new V&A photographic gallery.

    I saw a Pentax, MX I think, on the South Bank yesterday.

    Once Upon a Time, Season 3, Episode 12 - the young lad (Henry) has been using a Canon F1 of all things!

    It's all a bit silly really - somebody's trying to prove that the lad's mother's has lost her memory, so he makes her pick up the camera, take it to a drug store, get the pictures processed and printed and then, when she looks at them, they show her doing things that she doesn't remember doing - fine so far. The problem is that when she opens the wallet of pictures that she's just had developed and printed from film she says "how do I know these weren't Photoshopped?"

    What a dimwit!

    Cheers, Jeff
