    Idiot comedy movie made in 1969. Woman cop is using a Nikon camera (F?) with some kind box attached to the bottom. Caught the word, "speed" on the box. She gives the guy she takes a picture of a ticket for inappropriate activity in public. She gives him a photo, apparently that the camera produced, on the spot. I had no idea Nikon ever had a deal with Polaroid or had an instant picture facility. It could have been some third-party product.

    Speed Magny 100.

    Uses mirrors and lenses to expose a polaroid instant film sheet from the
    Nikon camera in a box underneath it.

    Thanks, but I wonder why they just didn't use a Polaroid camera? Probably because you could put a telephoto on the Nikon.

    Didn't see that as much in 43 year old movies as you do today.

    No, but they did do it, quite a bit actually. One example would be all
    the cigarette smoking, with the packages visible, and guys buying Cokes
    or Pepsis.

    It has just gotten much worse these days.

    "that as much" doesn't exclude the realistic possibility.
