Do we know what type of cameras lenses and film stock is used for the photos in this book?
I remember sir Roger Deakins was using Leica M6 and Ilford stock but can't remember which Ilford.
Also, what is he shooting nowadays HP5 or Delta?
As far as I know, Roger used a Pentax S1 SLR with a 50mm Takumar lens for the early B/W photos but does admit he did use a Nikon before that but is unsure which camera he actually used. I understand, that he used Kodak Tri X film stock for the B/W photos.
His main still camera is still the Leica M9 which he also uses when he is on set.
You are wrong he said ;
I later bought a Nikon F3 and finally a Leica M6, which is my favorite.
then he also said ;
I shoot with a Leica M8 these days. I do also own a Leica Q, which I use on days when I am scouting for a film and moving around a lot.
Obviously, you are better informed than I. All your answers are stored in the forums archives.
