Good morning you war torn camera geeks! Today I present to you a series I call “Sunday Stories.” It is exclusively a YouTube series on the Camera Legend channel. Today’s story is about the “stolen” Olympus OM-D E-M1 at the 2013 PhotoPlus show in NYC. It was a story that could have turned out pretty bad but…well, if you’re interested, please check it out here:
Flashback Sunday Pics
(Above) Someone had recently asked me for a straight out of camera jpeg from the Leica M8 and here’s one from 2015. Shot with the M8 and 35mm f/1.2 Voigtlander Nokton. Hope this helps!
(Above) A photo taken by real world Camera Legend and friend Frank B. aka “Boscodamus” at the PhotoPlus Expo show in 2010. He took the photo using my M8 and his 50mm f/1.0 Leica Noctilux. I’m amazed that he nailed the shot! I mean, he’s an experienced Leica M film camera user but the fact that the shot is so sharp at f/1.0, man, Frank I’m impressed! And the happy expressions? Wow! Then again, I’ve always been impressed with Frank’s work, he’s a master!
Frank says his website is offline right now but he’s free to leave a link here should it open up again. Thanks Frank and my regards to Mrs. B! 🙂
(Above) Has the Covid restrictions worn you out? Hopefully not much longer! 🙂
The last Sunday Leica M8 flashback was shot in 2017 with the M8 and 50mm f/1.5 Nokton (Voigtlander Prominent) lens via adapter. Note the funky bokeh in the background. This is also a straight out of camera jpeg and the colors look better than the first image I think.
That’s it for January folks, see you next month!

Yo Bro! Thanks for the plug and posting one of my Pride and Joys on your blog..I think it really shows the special quality of the M8 sensor (and probably of CCD sensors in general).
BTW thanks for the tip on the Kipon adapter. I’m getting a Z7 and I’m checking out adapters for my M lenses. I was thinking Novoflex just to be sure I get a quality fit. Wide open shooting is all I intend to do.
Those vintage pictures of your girls certainly do bring back memories! 🙂
Stay safe Bro,

Hey Bro! I agree with you on the M8 sensor it’s something else. Always a pleasure to share your work and when we get together I’d like to interview you as a real world Camera Legend!
If you get the Z7 I think for manual lenses any adapter will do but if it has electrical contacts get a good one! The must get is the Nikon F to Z adapter so you can use that 200mm f/2 Phat glass! Regards to Mrs B and cheers!
