Stealth Leica: an alternate take
6 months ago
In general, people stealth their cameras for 2 main reasons:
1) to make the camera less obvious (or less intrusive/obnoxious/etc) when taking pictures
2) for Leica cameras particularly, to hide its value (since in some countries, there is the knowledge that Leica == money)
In this post I am talking about the 2nd point. Take a look at this DPReview comparison picture:
This gave me a little idea, has anyone thought of masking the very obvious white Leica logo and text on a black M9-P with the Fuji logo instead? The two cameras are practically alike to the non-photography crowd... even if it has minimal impact on actual thieves, it can avoid attracting attention during normal social or family gatherings where you get mobbed by the "ooh you have a Leica" crowd.
