Which camera is dropped in water by Spiderman character?

So Mr. Harrington places his camera on a railing to take a selfie in Venice, and in one of the many humorous scenes akin to many Peter Seller's characters, watches as his rather expensive looking camera ultimately falls into the drink.

I'm talking about a scene in the new Spiderman movie with the subtitle "Far from Home." I couldn't quite make out the camera, but with it's range-finder look and red dot, I assumed it was a Leica. Anyone have any more insight into the camera that was (supposedly) dropped into the water?

Ridicule (Middle Age men) for shooting with dedicated Camera
1

I ♥ spiderman, but that scene bother me.  It is yet another

  • Ridicules Middle Age men for shooting with a dedicated camera
  • that scene add (nothing to the plot) of the movie
  • that scene was completely unnecessary to Peter Parker & the Spiderman
  • why was that specific scene added?  Other than making fun of middle age men?

Every seconds counts in filming & screen writing, thus any plot or scene that slow-down-the-movie is usually removed/cut in the editing.  I thought that scene was completely unnecessary:

  • That male teacher was already portraits as a LOSER in the 1st movie
  • and having No Friends to take a photo of him, further established his LOSER identity
  • then having him drop an expensive Leica was simply adding SALT to the wounds

Wouldn't it be more efficient to write him off completely?  Why adding him as a comic relief other than making fun of middle age camera shooter?  Anyhoot, I hope you all saw the movie to understand what I am talking about.

I think that you have taken that comic moment a bit too personaly.

Can you think of a gender,age group, race,nationality or profession that hasn't had someone making fun of it ?

It made me laugh. And moments like that make the world feel more real and therefore like there is actually something a stake. If the movie only focused on the good guys it wouldn’t feel as fleshed out to me.

The sad part of that myth (lemmings committing suicide) was that dear loveable Walt Disney studios completly faked those scenes including throwing lemmings over a cliff. https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=wildlifenews.view_article&articles_id=56

Re: Which camera is dropped in water by Spiderman character?

Haha... that's the FIRST thing I Google'd when I left the theater on the opening weekend for this film, to see if anyone else had noticed he dropped a Leica into the water!  No one had, yet...

Just saw the movie and of course the Leica drowning scene was hard to miss. As far as the movie goes, pretty lengthy and unnecessary, but Sony is the first name you see on screen when the movie starts, before the Columbia Logo. Product placement has been with us for quite a while. Did Sony just invent product Dysplacement? (and yes, the "y" is intentional here).
