Question: Film Camera!? What kind of camera is this at the Inauguration!?
I attended the Inauguration yesterday and captured a fellow using, I think, a film camera!. Do they really still use those things!?

Uh!.!.!.duh!. Many of us still use and prefer film over digital!. I am one of them!. Digital cannot touch the beauty of my 4x5 view camera nor can it touch the quality of a properly exposed kodachrome 25 slide film!. Not everyone is enamored with digitla which has done the most to kill the business of photography!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

an old pentax im geussing, the triangle at the top might say Ashti!?

or a nikon, canon, olympus et cetera

could be a srt maybe!? i really dont know, they are all the same to me, put the film in set the exposure, snap and go,

they still have such things yes because unlike digi cams they last decades and dont get dirty sensors :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Nope!.!.!. It was the Secret Service trying to confuse all you young people, it wasn't a film camera at all but a x-ray device able to look for guns, bombs or knives!.

We all know film cameras are history and no one in their right mind would be caught dead using one in public!. However, if the person was in their left mind, they could be using anything!.

The fact that anyone would use anything like this is only to miss-lead you, as other people in higher Government do, to give you a false sense of security that every thing is alright!. Eat it up and dwell in the feeling all is warm and glowing!. Illusions are spread this way!.

Bottom line, does it really matter what camera it might have been!.!.!? Will it make MY taxes go down!.!.!? Yours!.!.!? Who can I turn to - to help bail ME out from the stock collapse a few months ago when the loan banks failed, and the Gov bailed THEM out using OUR (my) money!.!.!?!?

Oh what a curious time we live in anymore!.

The camera looks to be an older FM series Nikon!. Indeed people still use 35 mm film cameras and though it may seem antiquated shooting smaller film formats there are still larger format film formats 120, 4x5, 5x7, 8x10 which still edge out digital!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
