When you’re watching your favorite TV series, it’s hard to pay attention to background details. But when these details include something you equally love, the show just gets even better. Check out the analogue cameras spotted in Ted and Marshall’s apartment!
How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) basically needs no introduction, especially now that it’s on its 7th season. But for the benefit of those who don’t have an idea, it is an award-winning American sitcom that fundamentally tells the story of the hilarious, poignant and fateful events that led Ted to his wife.
Most episodes feature Ted and Marshall’s apartment which practically screams “vintage”. In an interview for Set Decor in the Spring 2007 issue, HIMYM’s set designer Susan Mina Eschelbach discussed the elements of the set and its relevance to the characters: “Marshall and Ted are romantics, unlike their friend Barney. Their possessions reflect their interests in salvaged and recycled goods. Ted, the architect, has an appreciation of the classicism in architecture.”

That very much explains the pin-up posters in the living room, vintage signages in the kitchen and, much to the delight of analogue lovers, some old school cameras that stood proudly on the wall shelves. They include a twin reflex camera, pinhole camera, Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash, etc.
A tripod and vintage film projector were also spotted.
