In one scene, during a bush-fire at Malibu, you can see a "brassed to death" M3 used by one of the photojournalists during a press conference with Robert Redford, who plays a California senatorial candidate. Later on in the film a black-enamel M3 also can be seen during a post TV debate interview in a dressing room. In both cases the cameras have wide-angle bright-line finders. Apparently the famous White House photographer Stanley Tretick worked on the film and promotional stills, hence the authentic touches :?)
