Check out the unique, custom designed Leica cameras from the Japan Camera Hunter and Street Silhouettes

In the past few months, Japan Camera Hunter and Street Silhouettes have worked together to create several unique, custom designed Leica cameras. Here is a brief report on their work:

So far there are 3 cameras in the project, with several more to come. We have been working together to come up with different and challenging designs.

The first in the series was the Jellybean white and pink camera. With the 21mm Super Angolan, finder and pink meter. This is a straight repaint on the bare brass.

The second was the Pikachu, with matching meter and Summicron 35mm lens. This is also a straight repaint on bare brass. We wanted to see what the limits of color would be.

The most recent is the Snowflake with DR lens. This is a repaint and engraving piece. The snowflakes are all engraved onto the body and filled in with paint. This is the most challenging of the cameras so far as the paint is also pearled and with fading.

The next cameras are coming in the next few months. They will be even more technically challenging. We want to see how far we can push the boundaries.
