New prototype Leica M appears in the movie "The Mountain Between Us"
7

Today I watched the new movie "The Mountain Between Us", featuring Kate Winslet & Idris Elba, and saw what must be a new prototype M camera being used by the stars.  This Leica M rangefinder has some fantastic features not found on current M models, like my M10.  For example, in one scene the camera body clearly looks like a M240 or M262.  A long lens, such as a Summicron-M 90mm, is mounted throughout the movie.  Later, Kate Winslet advises Idris Elba to look through the M rangefinder so that the long telephoto lens can help" magnify the distance", like a pair of binoculars. Some kind of new rangefinder technology?  In another scene you can "hear and see the lens autofocus".  Kate Winslet's character takes an image of a dog from about 1 foot away from the dog's face, showing an amazing close focusing range.  She shows a digital photograph just made by pressing the image review button on the rear screen, but later, the camera turns into an M-4P, as is clearly marked, and 35mm roll of film shows up by the movie's conclusion.  Wow, what an amazing Leica rangefinder.
