veronica mars shoots an "ikon"

  1. I was touring the site on my laptop and looked up to see the girl on the TV show "Veronica Mars" shooting candids with what looked like a D70 and a big lens. What was funny was the fact that they blacked out the N in Nikon leaving the brand name "ikon". Hmmmm "ikon" sounds like "Icon" pretty good name for a camera! Interesting how you notice camera's in TV and movies once you start to think about them all the time.

    Yes this post proves that I have nothing better to do than watch tv while posting on the internet. :biggrin:

    hi matt-

    she had a coolpix last season (yeah it's a guilty pleasure hehe!). now she has a dslr with a big lens (80-200?).


  3. Hi Matt, Ikon is indeed a very famous name (in the old days) in photography. And it's coming back with a rangefinder camera and some lenses.

    It's gotta be a copyright/product placement thing...

    I've seen music videos where the musicians black out the instrument brand name.

    Still use an Ikophot light meter - it's at least twenty years old and still going strong.
