Perception Camera Leak

On the season 3 finale of  ABC’s Perception, they may have leaked a new digital rangefinder but with a film advance lever!!!

Well that or have a very bad knowledge in today’s photography developments.

A man hides in a closet taking photos with a camera which appears to be a leica. What makes the scene so funny is that he  winds the lever of the rangefinder after pressing the shutter. It then goes to a a scene of the viewfinder which looks like a modern day canon/nikon dslr. With these settings…


f5.6      ISO 320      1/100


He continues to wind and shoot, with subsequent still shots shown as the images taken.

Its all in the details and I felt that was a major oversight/lack of research… Unless I am mistaken and there are digital camera’s with a film advance lever as novelty…….



Maybe I am just too much of a photog nerd.
