An enlargement.

Not sure how the flash would have helped though and seems the other tog hasn't quite got to grips with things!

Yeah I spotted that too. Fill in flash presumably, but judging by the light in Turmezistan, I hope he has HSS

Bring out "any old camera" is what TV series production staff do (we've seen it all before!) - doesn't matter what, or from where!

Somebody at Ricoh-Pentax should have slipped them a few quid and loaned them a K-1 and a 150-450! .
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

That looks like a silver K200D, a good choice for sandy conditions as it's weather-sealed. The other guy looks like he's shooting Canon and has no lens hood, so on both counts my guess is that he has no clue what he's doing.

A lot of Canon lenses do not come supplied with a lens hood, so that may not be too surprising.
Best regards, John
