Crocodile Dundee II - camera question

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Victor Bazarov, Aug 3, 2003.

  1. Somewhere in the beginning of that movie the plot takes us
    to the South-American jungle where the Sue's ex is taking
    pictures of some drug people's gathering. First several
    shots he takes with a Nikon, if I recall correctly, and
    a mirror lens. Then after the main bad guy shoots the other
    guy, the photographer is shown with a different lens on his
    camera (not a mirror one). I somehow missed the moment when
    he changes lenses, or did he shoot with two cameras? Or was
    it a blunder let in by the editors?

    Sounds like he changed lenses and/or bodies off camera, where action
    that doesn't drive the story tends to take place :)

    NO it's not! Now who's what.

    BTW, Victor has been a valuable contributor to this group long before you
    could babble camera. In light of your recent posts, we could do with out
    you.

    It's customary to put a carriage return between your message and your name.

    It may be fluff, but it is on topic.
    And you remain an annonymous troll.

  7. Of course the REAL story about the 'Camera' and the Crocadile Dundee movie
    is the FIRST one.

    Stupid writer puts in the following lines .....

    Native - 'you can't take my picture'.

    Photographer looking through viewfinder - 'are you afraid I will take your
    spirit if I take your picture'

    Native - 'Nagh, you left the lens cap on'.

    Of course the camera is a Canon F1 an SLR camera. She would have seen
    straight away she didn't have the lens cap on when she looked through the
    viewfinder. But some idiot writer thought it would be a funny reprise of
    those old American Indian/camera jokes.

    Not quite as stupid as the left handed Canon F1 used in Spiderman though.

  8. Okay, if I ever watch it again, i'll look carefully for this alleged "plot"

    And as for the camera thing... well, the first things left on the cutting
    room floor are the little details that add narrative drag.
