An iPhone case for Leica lovers

25
Gizmon's Leica-inspired case is now available for the iPhone 5. 

iPhone-toting Leica lovers will want to check out the Gizmon iCA5 case, which not only makes your iPhone 5 look more like a real camera but also offers some of the benefits of one. The case features an optical viewfinder, physical shutter button, micro hot shoe, conversion lens mount, tripod socket and holes for attaching a strap. An optional leather case and neck strap is sold seperately to complete the look.

The previous model, the iCA, fit the iPhone 4/4S.

This is weird and wacky. And it brought a smile to my face. I love it, and I don't have an iPhone, but I do have the real thing, a nice IIIf.

I can see the Chicago Sun-Times issuing these to all of their reporters.

According to NYC police dept, crime last year would have gone down instead of up if we could not count iPhone thefts. So, this product disguises an iPhone to look like something far more valuable, although possibly less likely to be swiped while disguised. I wonder if it will help.

Yeah, the cheap, plastic build quality of iphones is just the worst. ...What?

I'm guessing you've had a problem with Chinese products for what, 30 years? Times change.

I think it is amusing, and if I had an i-phone, I might be tempted in a whimsical way. Depending on price. And hey, the best camera is the one you have with you, right?

Must admit I would rather carry around my small m4/3ds camera with a pancake lens for that. And there are other relatively minute cameras like the Lumix LF1. But if you have to have a smart phone......

There is a Leica look case for my LG Motion as well. But is not near as "authentic" as this one for the iPhone. For the first time I'm jealous of an iPhone. You lucky devils!! Very nifty for you all.

Yes they have to camouflage it in order to make it look somewhat plausible because by it self it would look pretty laughable. it almost gives it an aire of professionalism. How fitting putting on aire's
