Paris Through Pentax: Short Film Lets You See a Great City Through a Different Lens

Mai­son Carnot, an ad stu­dio in France, has pro­duced a delight­ful short film that lets you see Paris through the viewfind­er of the clas­sic Pen­tax 67 cam­era. Antoine Pai, one of the film­mak­ers, told Petapixel, “As Parisians, we are so used to the charm of our city that we for­get some­times to take a minute and observe.” “Mar­cel Proust once said, ‘Mys­tery is not about trav­el­ing to new places but it’s about look­ing with new eyes.’ That is total­ly what we felt while shoot­ing this film.” To see Paris through a dif­fer­nent lens, watch Paris Through Pen­tax above. To get the back­sto­ry on the con­trap­tion Mai­son Carnot jer­ry-rigged to shoot the film, head over to Petapix­el.
