Digital Pimp

I don't know whether it's because their design makes them harder to customise or just because they're harder to love but it seems there isn't too much of a pimpin' scene going on for digital cameras.

This Panasonic LX3 is different, though, and I think it looks great. I found it on another website and will happily take it down if it upsets the owner who I can't contact. His name is Jörg Schmidt and he deserves lots of credit for creativity. This doesn't look like an off-the-shelf camera leather job but a custom fit bit of tanned dead animal skin.

The nearest thing to white

In response to a comment left on a previous post speaking about a white leather finish for the OM1, this is about the closest you're going to get. It's's black and white cobra finish. I'm not sure about it on a chrome body but it would be pretty striking on a black OM1!

I don't think will object to a bit of free publicity but I'm happy to remove the pic if it causes them any concern.
