Leica M8 White Edition Set Unboxed

Today, we received our first shipment of the Leica M8 White Edition Set. All the sets that came in were already pre-sold, but we are getting more in the next few weeks. Becuase they are so limited (only 275 units world-wide), I thought that I would post a virtual "unboxing" for all to enjoy.

Nice, big box with a white label on it

Inside, there are seperate boxes for the White M8, Silver 28mm Elmarit-M ASPH, White Edition Strap, and an E39 UV/IR filter

All-white certificate of authenticity. Inside are the serial numbers, the series number of the camera (xxx/275), and the signature of Rudolf Spiller, the CEO of Leica Camera AG.

28mm Elmarit-M ASPH box, also with a white label

Notice the white leather lens pouch and classic, push-on silver chrome lens cap

Side view of the lens, complete with white focusing tab

Classic, vented round hood

White numbering on the lens, makes it a little hard to read, but very stylish indeed

White leather camera strap

Camera and lens

Even the shutter speed dial has white numbering

Wish the USB cover was white

Well, that should do it for now. Perhaps a camera clad in white leather might not be the picture of practicallity, but hey, even I have to admit that it is pretty stylin'. I think I'll stick to my black paint M8.2, but for those who want a truly exclusive camera that can't be mistaken for antything else, the M8 White Edition Set is pretty neat.

If you are interested in getting one of the few remaining cameras, please contact me directly or head on over to Dale Photo & Digital to order online. Price is $8500 for the full set.

My goodness, the white table show-and-tell is very appropriate. How did you do this unboxing shoot? Do tell :-)

The white M8 is too cool for words, but not very practical. I wish I had deeper pockets ;-)

I heard a cute comment to this camera sometime ago and here it goes:

".. wow, so precious looking that the owner can use it in heaven ..."

That's funny. ;)
