Day Two Hundred Thirty Six

    Newer Older

    I'm not one to put a case on my phone. From a Nokia8860, Motorola Vader, Kyocera 6035 and so on, just never like cases. Then again I was always buying different faceplates and LCD overlays for all my phones.

    So that got me thinking, what could I do with my current phone? Since I couldn't install a blinking antenna I decided to embellish the front and back of the phone to make it look like a Leica M9.

    Originally, I thought all I would have to do was just simply scale the camera to the phone's dimensions but I soon found out that the phone was actually wider than the rangefinder. This resulted in a very fat looking M9 with a severely distorted lens.

    After thinking it through a bit, I decided that I would need to do some cloning and healing to make the body look a bit normal. Then I proceed to transplant unmodified parts onto this new body.

    I debated a bit on giving it the black logo but in the end decided to go with the more recognizable red dot. Pretty fun stuff.

    More photos of the phone/camera can be found here.

      Another guy that did a Leica M8 a few months ago is offering his source files for the project if you'd like to download them and make one yourselves.
