For most Muslims, Muhammad al-Bukhari's collection (i.e. Sahih Bukhari) is considered among the most trusted — if not THE most trusted — and authentic collection of hadith.

Are the original copies of his books still available, either in their original physical form or in photographic (i.e. not manual) reproductions? If so, where can they be found?

The original copy (some scanned pages or all?) is shown in this website.

It's said on that page that the original copy is saved in The King Abdul Aziz Public Library in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

This can never be original, the script is Moroccan. – user2756 Jul 4 '13 at 7:09
