Chanel N°5 Ad Online

Audrey Tautou and Travis Davenport in new Chanel No5 AdYou know the Internet has started to surpass traditional media when the new Chanel N°5 ad is premiered online instead of in newspapers, billboards or the TV. The ad, billed as a mini movie, is 2 min 20 sec. in length (with a shorter 60 sec. version also available) and features Audrey Tautou [ The Da Vinci Code and Amélie ]. And, oh yes, you can briefly see a Leica M8 in the ad and Audrey presses the right button to enlarge the playback picture.

Leica is running a Save over $1,000 promotion on Leica M8 upgrades. The Leica M8 White Edition is also now available [only 275 available].

With more and more DSLRs now sporting movie capability, I wonder if we will one day see a commercial ad shot on a DSLR with movie capability? That will really help DSLR sales!

The Making of A Leica M7

Leica M7Here's an interesting video of how a Leica M7 is assembled. [I was able to view it in Firefox 3.0 but not IE 8.] It's in German with English subtitles. I never knew the Leica M7 is made in Portugal, then assembled/re-assembled in Germany; or that you need to bake it in an oven; or, glue in the leather by hand -- all hail Mrs. Heimann! Hmm, I wonder if they could do this hand assembling and testing much much cheaper in Taiwan. Watching the video tells me there's absolutely no reason it needs to be assembled and tested in the German lab. But then a made-in-Taiwan Leica would never fly!
