I assume many of you all have read Tintin's adventures. In "Tintin au Tibet" that was written in 1960, Tintin and captain Haddock climb the Himalaya mountains to save Tintin's Chinese friend, Tchang, who was in a plane that had crashed accross the mountains on its trip from Katmandu. As they are about to found the young boy, they are warned by the local peasants that the Yeti (the Himalayan snow monster, an old actual myth equiv. to the Loch Ness monster one) is around, so that captain Haddock tells Tintin to take the camera and try to shoot the creature if it comes around. Finally the camera and its flashgun prove to be a decisive part of the scenario According to the date of release of the album, it might be a Leica M already, but it rather seems to be a screw mount Leica. The M appears in another Herge album, "Les bijoux de la Castiafiore", in the hand of a people photographer named Walter Rizzotto, that is a clear tribute to the actual Belgian photog. Willy Rizzo.
