Appareil photo de Polly Perkins

Reproduction of the camera used by Gwyneth Paltrow in "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow".

The movie propmen used a 1939 Argus C3, with 2 versions:
- basic version for wide shots
- another version with an older rewind button and especially a fake frame counter for shots where the number of remaining shots is important in the story

The reproduction is based on the same camera, with a scratchbuilt fake frame counter and the same rewind button than in the earlier model, the Argus C2.
