The fact that I’m both a father as well as an analog enthusiast is part of the reason that this video for “You Make Me Smile” actually makes me smile.
In it Aloe Blacc plays the part of a struggling photographer surrounding himself with cameras and sporting both the Speed Graphic (Remember Sir Mix-a-Lot?) as well as a Konica S.
The Konica S, introduced in 1959, was the first semi-automatic rangefinder by Konica.
It had an exposure meter and––in Blacc’s case––an 45/2.8 Hexar lens. Other variants had the 48/2 or 48/1.8 Hexanon.
By the way, the video is directed by photographer Eric Coleman, but that’s a whole different story.
