    Leica on Super Bowl Ad

    During yesterday's Super Bowl thing that you may have heard about Lincoln ran a commercial that featured Leica. Synopsis:

    Pretty girl driving a Lincoln picks up a "German" hitchhiker. They stop for animals on road. He pulls out a chrome Leica, which when seen from back is a black M9 with live view(!).

    Available on YouTube and other places.

    Yeah, from the new Lincoln ad.

    It's actually two cameras; one of which is an M9.

    Live view? Or just the shot review? It is a M9.

    Marc, It appeared to be live view but of course I'm sure there are all sorts of ways they could strip in a moving image on it's rear LCD, so actually that particular M9 didn't really have Live view, it just appeared that way. Either that or one just has to know the correct sequence of M9 buttons to push, in order to bring up the hidden "options" menu

    I'm kind of thinking that if you are wearing an M9 you probably won't be hitchhiking.

    You would be if your M9 money was earmarked for a car!
