The 2CV tour – guess the camera

I wonder if many of the foreign tourists that tour Paris in a Citroen 2CV do realize how important this car is to French culture. Indeed, the 2CV instantly brings memories of great comic movies from the 60's and 70'S. (Le Corniaud, starring Bourvil and De Funès).

Have a look at this trailer from Le Corniaud (starring de Funès and Bourvil), can you recognize the camera that Bourvil is wearing around his neck ?   (I have no idea)

As for today's picture, it illustrates the problem of framing cars when you have a long lens on and no space to back pedal. Nevertheless, it does lead to creative framing.
