I believe that the Canon F1 was the camera used by Peter in Spiderman.

Just for the fun of it:

A Canon white L was shown broking during the Shaolin soccer movie towards the end.

Spiderman 2 to be exact. I think he used a FM2 in the first. Heck, even Peter Parker went Canon!!! :D

The camera in Spiderman 1 is also a Canon F1. They blacked out the Canon brand on the pentaprism but retained the model number F1 ;p Interesting why they did not use an EOS instead.

To add on to that, in The Jackal starring Bruce Willis, he used what looks like a Canon EF 500mm f/4 mounted to a digital cam (XL1?), which is mounted onto a mega-a$$ gatling gun thingie... scary looking stuff. :sweat:

You see a whole row of white lenses on a rack...
(though I spot a couple of Minoltas in them too.)

In Saving Private Ryan, at the beginning of the movie Prtivate Ryans son was shooting an EOS at the cemetary.
