    Another celebrity Leica M sighting

    This time, it's Dakota Fanning....isn't she 12? Not any more, I guess. First, Miley Cyrus, now this....

    Film M around her neck?

    Spotted on Set | Photo Gallery - Yahoo! Movies


    Scarlett Johannsen was an early adopter to Digital M's back in 07

    I'm sure there are more...but it's a bit of fun to see which celebrities are into the M's...

    Hmmm . . someday maybe she'll take the lens cap off. But she gets eccentric points for shooting film.

    Well, let's not forget Ann Curry who's also a long-time Leica shooter.

    Cool. I have one of his M8s.

    Was the controversy on LUF or RFF? I was only aware of the latter - though I wouldn't be surprised to hear of it on LUF also...

    Nice...looks like D.C. likes fast lenses...that looks like an f/0.95 Noct in front of his camera....

    As for Seal, he's a good guy, but impassioned, and both RFF and LUF can be unforgiving at times. I have gotten bludgeoned at LUF a few times myself...

    Apparently Brad Pitt bought his M7 at La Maison du Leica in Paris.

    The Seal dust-up was on Huff's site in the commentary of Babsky's Fuji x100 review. For those interested, it's documented here...

    BTW, Ann Curry was on Today today, in London. I'm surprised, as she was recently fired from the show, which was IMHO a dumb move. She did not look comfortable.

    Re: Another celebrity Leica M sighting

    Seal has appeared on RFF and LUF under various names. He has been quickly spotted (a leopard seal?) when the 'don't you know who I am?' replies to contradictory opinions come along. I had never heard of him (I don't watch TV, don't pay attention to celebrities, and get my musical kicks with opera) and was bold enough to say so and was told I was jealous of him!

    And then there is Yul Brynner

    Do a search for "Yul Brynner takes a picture of Charlton Heston during filming of The Ten Commandments."

    Re: Another celebrity Leica M sighting

    Seal shows what can happen when you are so full of yourself, or in the hands of a sponsor. Lets face it, anybody regularly commenting on Leica or any brand can hardly be seen as neutral if their main focus is on the one subject. True they may know a lot about the subject, but putting that into context with the outside world is often beyond them for personal and financial reasons.

    As soon as one of the Kardashians buys (do they buy?) a Leica, I'm going to get one too. They're so smart, and have such good taste.

    Hey I was in Maine sporting a monochrome and a Leica S why no mention of that. Did I lose my celebrity status or something. ROTFLMAO

    What a bad focusing technique. She'd be better off with a P&S.

    Re: Another celebrity Leica M sighting

    I'm almost embarrassed to say that I watch an MTV series called "Catfish" based on the self pseudo-documentary of a young male photographer caught in an online romance. His buddies plead with him to travel and find the young lady (so he thinks) and film the journey and consequences. I thought the movie was quite interesting.
    Catfish Movie: A Tale of Twisted Cyber-Romance - ABC News

    Anyway, Nev the photographer subject quite often appears on camera with a Leica M9.
