The Leica M8 is the best marriage of the old school film world and the new digital era that I can think of! If I was a rich guy I would buy this in a heartbeat! Â Really to have the camera that was used by the early photography gods is cool enough! To have it digital is beyond awesome!
In fact if the R&D wasn’t so much, I would develop replacement digi-backs for all kinds of old cameras! Like the Pentax K1000, or the Canon AE1 and such! I wouldn’t spoil the fun however by putting any sort of LCD or preview screen on it!Â You would still have to wait to get to a computer to see what you took photos of!! Or maybe I would ship them with the Eye-Fi card! So it could upload them to your PDA or Wi-Fi enabled device or something! Â That would be fun!! In fact think of your lomo or your Holga with a strap on CMOS sensor!! That would rock! Alas it would be a venture that would be guaranteed to fail financially so would be an awful business idea! Â Would be fun though! If i was rich!
