Oh, Sure…A-List Celebrity, Married to An Incredible Woman, Global Humanitarian.. What Else Ya Got?

Yep, he’s has a few things going for him.
Brad Pitt just added another assignment into his ultra cool life: cover photographer for W. Coming in November.
Luckily, he knew the talent so it must have been a lot more comfortable for him. Plus at least one of them was very at ease in front of camera.
OK, it was Angelina. And their kids.
At their Château Miraval pad in the south of France.

Did he use the Littman 45 single camera? A birthday gift from his wife? We hear she also ordered her own.
The company, Littman, has taken the convenience of the Polaroid 110 with parallax focusing, and combined it with the luxurious richness of a 4×5 negative.

From their site:
William Littman
Creator of the Littman 45 Single

“The ability to be mobile and utilize the whole frame is not a marginal convenience because otherwise people would stay with a smaller format and save the difference or stay on a tripod and use ground glass on a much less expensive camera than any conversion.

The ability to get the sharpest possible image while mobile and shooting wide open is also not a marginal convenience and its absence severely limits the ability to hand hold unless in optimum lighting conditions or inability to use fast shutter speeds required while mobile.

The combination of the two plus its portability is what makes our product a 4×5 snapshot camera.

A 4×5 camera already offers a more corrected image than a smaller format even without the use of any movements…..”

“Many have said why use a 4×5 camera as a snapshot camera and I believe that would appeal to those who wish to be able to take a picture in” a snap” while seeking a more true to life feel in the image rather than something which looks less true to life.”

[photopress:twonew.jpg,full,centered] You didn’t really need another photo of Brad Pitt, right?

With multiple options of cameras, custom built for your purposes, get ready to pay for the hand made quality of this fine, exclusive club of Littman 45 owners.
from about $5000-$5700 USD should do it. Plus tax, if you are in NYC.

The digital cameras are all in our hands, but Littman 45 is bringing sexy back, in a very 4×5 way.

And if you really need that gratuitous Brad Pitt shot:
