Paris Through the Lens of a Pentax 67

Paris, the city of love, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The short film “Paris Through Pentax” displays a new way of seeing this iconic city, through the dreamy waist level finder of the Pentax 67, making you see life in a completely different way.

The film was made by Mathieu Maury and Antoine Pai of a French production/advertising company Maison Carnot. It beautifully conveys the lifestyle of Parisian streets Рwatching people playing bowls, people kissing under some trees, street dancers, and of course the Eiffel Tower Рall framed through the viewfinder of the classic medium format camera. The way the pair where able to document it was by rigging up a Blackmagic pocket camera to the Pentax with some blackened cardboard stuck above it to block out any reflections.

The film is a true testament to the capabilities of the Pentax and what unbelievable clarity can be achieved through it.

Enjoy the trip around Paris!
