Other than the fact that we already know the americans lost the Vietnam War, I'd think that it's a very nice movie. Not really for the faint hearted (like my wife)... coz there are some ala "toned down a bit" SPR stuffs in there (blood sputtering here and there)Originally posted by Mystix

Nikons have been used by the US, UK and Australian military forces and many others since the mid-late 60s.Originally posted by yeppie99

i download them for personal preview and delete with in 24 hours
dvi movie...that's why compression cannot make it...also, i was using only an AMD K6 with a lousy 2MB GFX card, so i cannot edit/capture any better shot.
it was 4am already so i dun have the time to capture the pic properly
anyway, there is a part of the movie which shows the soldier took the caemra and go around taking picture in battlefield, if i have my AMD XP running, i can rip that part out for u to see...
Ian, you are really good, i only manage to see the word "nikon" on the camera, wonder how can u see the model number as well..
anyway, i know why in that part of the movie, he bring his camera up for half second, snap and put down the camera....this is to show his facial expression as he witness the war
more than that, about US President sending 58,000 US Soldiers to deathOriginally posted by sbs99

Actually he is using a Nikon F Photomic FTn not F2.
Wish I'd seen that trailer shot you posted as indeed it's an FTn. Nice camera too, I only retired mine 3-4 years ago from active duty though I still use an F on a semi regular basis.
Lol well I got the Nikon wrong as didn't consider the time period (didn't know the time period that the film was set in to be fair).Originally posted by YSLee
Ian, you're good. The resolution and quality is so low that I can't make out much. I was about to say it's a F or F2 Photomic for the 1st pic, and that's about all I can guess.
Is that a TLR of some kind in the last pic?
Yes it's definately a TLR down front right, though which manufacturer is hard to tell as the image is mighty blurred but I'd punt on it being mabye a Rollei of some sorts.
