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!
