    I can't get a good enough look at it.

    Looks to me like some kind of generic rangefinder camera. Although judging by the size in the last shot, it looks like it might be a medium format rangefinder. Past that, I don't think there's any way to tell what brand it is with such small photos.

    That's what I was thinking. The side shot makes the lens look like a non-interchangable zoom/AF lens. A Fuji 645 of some sort? Although I haven't seen them in all black.

    after some looking and from seeing something similar before, i would judge it is a mamiya 6 or 7 (both 6x6), maybe a Fuji GW 670 lll (6x7). I'm pretty sure you can find them on ebay for more pictures...

    I've used Mamiya 6, 7, and 7II. I don't think it's one of them. They are bigger from the front, and thinner from the side.

    http://www.galerie-photo.com/images/Photo-4b.gif - mamiya 6
    http://studiocitycamera.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/mamiya7thumbnail.JPG - mamiya 7

    If you look at the first image photogirl posted you can see what looks like a slot along the top of the camera. I assume there's a hinge or something and it's a big door for the film. I honestly have no idea. I can't see that gap on any of those three cameras. They all have shoes for the flash as well, photogirls camera doesn't.
    But the lens throws me (like I'd know anyway...), it seems very smooth. At first I was thinking it was a zoom lens on a digital camera.

    hmmm. are we sure it's the same camera in all the shots? that second one looked similar to one of those, but I dont have experience with any of them, so you're definitely going to know more about it. it seems there are alot of medium format rangefinders that look similar...

    I think it's too small to be anything but 35mm, 6x4.5cm, or digital (although it has an older look about it). The look of the lens in that shot from the side says to me zoom and AF.

    I was thinking it was one of these, but it still doesn't look right. Possibly an older model.

    The more I look at it I think it's some sort of 35mm point-n-shoot. It looks big in that girl's hands, but I can't really tell how big she is. I had a Pentax point-n-shoot that was all black, and huge.

    The quality is fine. I'd be able to spot that girls nose in a line up any day thanks to this new image. :lol:


    From that one, it looks plasticy to me. Now I'm thinking of some strange cheap camera. Along the lines of Holga, but not them. The way she's holding it makes it look like, as does the thin strap.
    The smooth lens still says digital though. It looks, to me, like it slides in and out. Why else would it look like that?

    If you told us where you got the images, or why you're asking about the camera it may trigger someone to have a brain fart. :)

    LOL.

    I don't think it's a cheap camera. It was used to take promotional shots for The Virgin Suicides film. I'm just curious. I have a weird curiosity about what cameras people use. :)
