I Am Number Six

Who amongst you have watched the I Am Number Four? Yeah Alex Pettyfer is cute and yeah he has a great body but what attracted me in the movie was Agron's collection of vintage cameras. By the way, Dianna really looked like a sissy in that movie. I would really much to be like Number Six. The red bike really said everything. The girl's got spunk. Anyways, did some research and found some of the cameras that were used in the movie. I hope that my days to go outstation will come soon so I can get hold of a SX-70 & Canon A-1. Maybe a birthday with tulips around perhaps. So, checkout the cameras:

Just saw this okay movie, but the exciting part was seeing all the vintage film cameras the female lead brought out during the course of the movie! Here are the main ones to the best of my recollection.

1. Nikon F 35mm SLR (1959-1973); It's obviously a Nikon F series, but the prism seems marked "1F". I'll have to check it out later to verify.

2. Hasselblad 500 C/M 120mm SLR (1964-Present); The character is shown holding this very expensive camera (or a similar Hassy) in a rather anachronistic fully decked out camera store in her small rural town. Check out the large Kodak boxes on the shelf behind the counter!

3. Canonet 28 series 35mm Rangefinder (1962-1980); She gives this one to the main character to take his own photos along with a roll of B&W film in a _metal_ canister...talk about retro. She also describes the cool way it's "light leaks" affects it's photos. Even lomography gets mentioned in this movie!

4. Ricoh XR-X 3PF (possibly some other newish 35mm SLR; not sure) (1964-1977); She is shown taking photos at the fair with this camera.
