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

Anthony Billings

It isn’t a movie, but have you ever seen the old Charles Bronson TV show “Man With A Camera?” He often used a press camera. He switched between a press camera and a 35mm rangefinder depending on the situation. They seem to get everything down pretty well. Bronson adjusts aperture and shutter speed before every shot. He sets up a bulb flash unit for the rangefinder. Even the occasional darkroom scenes appear properly done. The entire run of the show is available free on Hulu. It isn’t exactly the height of television art, but it could be viewed as an interesting history lesson for some budding photographers out there.
