Two Leica cameras are used. First the Leica M Monochrom (digital) camera with a Summarit 75mm lens, a short telephoto lens. But as it is a rangefinder camera you will not be able to see the magnification of the lens through the finder, on the opposite, the finder has a slight widening effect. When we see the blinking light in the valley through the finder of the camera, there is a focusing effect that does not exist with a Leica M camera and the image we see is zoomed in, which is impossible (except from the rear LCD screen). We also miss the focusing area, so specific for this camera. Just after the moment Alex/Kate W. sees the blinking, she hands over the camera to Ben/Idris E. But in this next shot the camera suddenly changed into a Leica M4-P (film) camera. You can also see this because of the different camera strap. After they made love, Alex/Kate W. starts to take photo's of Ben/Idris E. with the Leica M4-P camera, which is not so strange, because after almost 3 weeks the battery of the digital Leica M will be exhausted already for a long time. But no matter what Leica M lens she uses (in this case I think it is a Voigtländer 25mm), it is not possible to make a sharp focused picture from this close distance. The smallest focusing distance with these lenses is 0,7 meters (or non-rangefinder coupled 0.5 meters). And then there is of course the problem with the medium format negatives, as mentioned above.

If we stay here we're safe. If we leave, search and rescue, they're less likely to find us.
Look, I don't want to die up here because you're too scared to take a risk. We have to do something.

A reviewer for this film, by the name of "TheTruthDoor" has motivated me to write this review. First of all, I thought the film was okay. Not great. Nothing groundbreaking but a film worth watching at home on a slow day. The acting was good enough but not the best performances from either of these two wonderful actors. Then again, they were not given that much to work with. A sweet happy ending without much fuss.
Now, about the reviewer, that I mentioned above. Racist cowards like this person, make me sick to my stomach. I say, coward because that's what I call anyone who hides behind lies in order to attempt to make their point.
Hollywood does not have an obsession with casting black men with white female romantic co-stars. Hollywood is not shoving interracial relationships down our throats as "TheTruthDoor" claims. In reality, whats really going on is that racist people like "TheTruthDoor" are focusing in on something that should NOT matter one single bit! Let's exam what the word racism means. To judge someone based on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character. In other words, plain and simple, if you choose to first focus on the color of someone's skin as being that which defines said person, you are exercising racism. That IS what racism is! The lead being black, should have ZERO impact on the story unless race is part of the story. This story is about two human beings that are brought together and form a bond. Fait doesn't give a damn about the color of skin and perhaps someday racist clowns like "TheTruthDoor" will wake the hell up and let the obsession he/he has with skin color, go the way of the dinosaur.
It still amazes me that people like that can claim to not be racist when what their yelling about is nothing more than the color of skin. There is no reason why these two lead actors couldn't have any color of skin under the sun unless of course, specific skin colors bother you for which there is a definition for that type of thinking.
