Shooting fashion with 67, Micheal Jackson by Bruce Weber

This is the first time I see fashion shot with P67.
Michael Jackson by Bruce Weber... this guy shot P67 like it is digital, he cock the shutter so fast!

way cool - thx for sharing.
i guess i've never noticed anyone shooting vertical shots with an underhand technique. It seems like it would tweak the wrist too much. I guess the big handle would be in the way of the left hand otherwise, huh?
Can't argue with Bruce Weber's results!

It would've been nice to see the images after. Pretty neat. Thanks for sharing. When you mentioned how fast he cocks the shutter, it reminded me of the camera wars videos on YouTube.

The video is wild! I was intrigued by the assistant apparently shading the lens from the studio lights and the "hot" switch out of cameras at end of roll. Incredible.

I have never shot with the Pentax 6x7, but frequently use a "controls right" vertical hold with my 35mm film cameras and the K-3.

Even though this camera was not as famous as the leaf shutter cameras were for fashion, it can still get the job done.

Switching out the cameras while maintaining a neckstrap was really cool.

Yep he looks like he's done that a few times! I'd probably pass on buying his used 6x7 though.....

Well, there' s a Quick draw McGraw! And with such rapid fire and winding-on, I have pause to wonder about the trauma inflicted on his P67. Not that such a brute camera can't cope with it, just that the amount of wear and tear would probably not make it a particularly attractive catch on the second-hand market...

The assistant might be shielding the 67's opaque metering window on the TTL prism to prevent exposure error; I can't see how the brolly flash would influence the hooded lens from most shooting angles.

I cannot ascertain if the lens is a leaf shutter version (90 or 165mm) linked to the strobes.

I don't see him cooking a leaf shutter on the lens...

Cocking the leaf shutter can be done as an extension of focusing, and be done very, very quickly and fluidly by practiced professionals, including Weber. There is not a clear enough view of his operation to determine what lens he is using (could be a 90mm, 104mm or one of the LF lenses... who knows??). It is a simple, instantaneous push down of the cocking lever repetitious as it is, it would give any guy's fingers a solid work out, including winding the beast so deftly.
