The photographers shooting Bianca Castafiore use cameras like the Graflex Speed Graphic. While it was correct that the image on the ground glass focusing screen would be upside down, that image could only be seen if the film (sheet film holder) was not in place. In normal use, the photographer would have likely used the rangefinder and the top-mounted wire frame viewer - never looking at the ground glass focusing screen.
At one point in the opening credits, a running Tintin and Snowy are highlighted against a searchlight. This is a homage to the opening credits of The Adventures of Tintin (1991).
