I don’t know about you, but if it weren’t for the protective case on my smartphone, it would have probably needed to be replaced a long time ago. If cell phones have protective skins and cases, why shouldn’t cameras? Camera Armor is a protective case that’s custom designed for each separate DSLR model, and is available for both Canon and Nikon bodies — and a few others as well.
In addition to the silicon body skin, the system also includes protection for your lens, LCD screen, and other individual components of your kit. The cost of this protection is $40, which is pretty cheap compared to some of the novelty items we’ve featured here.

If you desperately want to make your phone look like a camera but our Leica-lookalike skin isn’t right for you, you can try printing out a camera yourself if you have a transparent case for your phone. yellow15 over at NikonJin recently transformed his iPhone 4 into a Nikon Rangefinder by printing the image out and sticking it behind his case. He also made the source image available for download. If you have a high quality printer at your disposal this could be quick way to give your phone a touch of photography awesomeness.
Remember the awesome Leica M9 iPhone 4 skin that we featured back in August? If you desperately wanted one, today is your lucky day — we’ve created our own and it’s for sale in the PetaPixel Store for $13 with free shipping within the US!
The super detailed plastic skin is designed to protect your iPhone 4 while making it look just like a Leica rangefinder camera.
