Hasselblad sighting

  1. The Aveeno (a Johnson & Johnson skin care line) TV commercials during the current Beijing Olympics feature a
    woman with a Hasselblad V series camera. It gives her a classy look that one cannot get with the modern lineup of
    cameras.
     
  2. And TLRs are also being used as props for models. I think when something becomes very obscure, there can sometimes be a coolness factor to it. But I think the real reason is that photographers have a bunch of film cameras around the studio, collecting dust, so they say to their models..."ah, here, take this thingy and hold it."
     
  3. I've seen the ad. Did you notice the one scene where the view is supposed to be through the camera viewfinder? The "photographer" is turning the film advance crank to adjust the focus......
     
  4. actually, i was very surprised to see models holding a Rolleiflex and Hasselblad 500c on Target fliers earlier this summer. I should have
    kept the catalogs.
