Subject: [Leica] Movie RF sighting

On the heels of the staged puzzle pieces of the new "Zeiss" RF, here's 
another case of "name that camera."

Check out page B12 of the New York Times Weekend Movies/Performing Arts 
section today (Friday). There is a double-page ad for a Buck-Rodgersesque 
movie called "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow."  Gwyneth Paltrow 
plays girl reporter Polly Perkins, and she's pictured sporting a camera 
that looks suspiciously like an Argus C3.  But the shutter button and 
protruding geared RF control are on the wrong side.   Did they reverse the 
picture so Gwyneth would be looking at Jude Law in the three side-by-side 
photos of the stars?
