No pictures with the lens cap off. Maybe the glass is painted over too.

Cheaper than a good canvas, I guess! Surely someone has the perfect spot in their home to feature this work of art.

The cost of shipping pretty much does it for me.

On another note these businesses who wrap automobiles, I wonder how many would do a wrap for a camera?

The wraps are vinyl which would peel off.

If I was to do it I would go with hydro dipping. Would be a bit more durable around the edges.

I was toying with the idea of hydro dipping an m top plate cammo at one point in time. I'm glad I didn't though.

$200?!
I got a EX++ Zorki-1 with sharp I-22 CLA & new curtains for $100.
I guess "art" sells better than "craft".

It's a lovely design, but I've seen better work. This one looks rushed.

I can't think of anything less appropriate or less appealing. It is wrong on just about every level possible. An assault on the visual senses and a travesty in destroying a decent camera and lens !

The world is full of FSU cameras that don't work and we are inexorably running out of homes for the ones that do. To some this may be an abomination but to me it's something different and I'm sure many people would enjoy just owning it and being able to look at it on the shelf. Maybe next to the old Royal Dalton dinner set they've never had the heart to part with.

This is what happens when your 10 y.o. kid gets hold of your camera.....

By the way, it reminded me this little village in Poland.

That was my first thought too. But we do have some nesting dolls with a similar paint scheme.

Well, the camera David pointed us to is gone but! Fear not!:


Listing here:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zenit-3M-Rus...EAAOSw2xRYXuct

I am honestly tempted but I have my doubts about its working condition.
To give the seller his/her due, they have 100% positive feedback and a decent amount of sales. And they are camera sellers.

David's paid homage to English canal boat decoration, to me this looks a bit like Delft pottery.

So, perhaps something Bauhaus next?

Yes, an all white camera would be ideal. The latest ebay one does look great though I don't think I'd like it purely as an ornament, and imagine it with a 2 or 3 inch wide hippy shoulder strap and flash to match...

Regards, David
