    Leica in action

    I noticed this picture of a Leica M6 in action on the set of Woody Allen's latest film.

    Scarlett Johansson was takening pictures on the second day of filming in Spain.

    I wasn't sure if she was really shooting with the camera or they were filming her as if she was shooting with the camera.

    Anyway I blew up the hi-rez to see what camera it was.

    Well, unless it is the first M6 with a LCD screen - I think it's safe to say she was not shooting the camera.

    But, hey, who would want to hide that pretty face behind an ugly old film camera anyway!

    That's the beauty of a Leica, you don't have to have it up to your eye to shoot. I do that all the time with my M6, but unfortunately my face isn't worth looking at anyway. Grin.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Actually there were better shots of her shooting with the camera. I've added one as image 3.

    She seems to be really shooting with it.

    Stop it, right now! Talk about camera porn. I'm falling in love with a Leica! :o

    Do you think she needs any help loading the film?

    Actually George she said she was OK loading the camera, but could use some help in the darkroom making the prints.

    I'm sure she'll be contacting you.

    Hmm, I wonder if that's a Luigi half case ? Looks like a Classic 6 to me.

    I included her in the other shots... more of a background/filler thing.
