Ummm Yeah. I'm familiar with that legend.
Unfortunately, the camera didn't stop a bullet, it deflected it. Judging from the damage to the camera,(the left top cover doesn't have much behind it where the bullet struck, the cover is fairly thin brass) the projectile's energy was just about spent - you could have done more damage to the camera by launching a bullet with a decent slingshot.
So saying "stopped a bullet from killing him" just isn't very accurate, although it's nicely dramatic and makes a good legend.
