Replying to comment by Charles H. on Speed Graphics/Press Cameras In Movies: A Visual Guide.

Charles H.

Great article! Sometimes I hunt for cameras whenever I watch a movie too, especially if it’s a period movie or a classic. (And isn’t that a post-war Speed Graphic in A League Of Their Own?).
I recently saw The Great Muppet Caper for the first time in ages and Gonzo carries what appears to be a miniature Speed Graphic, and it takes quite a beating! Understandably, he never seems to change his film or flashbulbs.

And the Midnight Express camera… could it be a Linhof Tecknika?
