The Leica M8 Apple iPhone Skin Mod

Apple devotees and Leica shutterbugs share a similar passion and devotion to their gear, so it comes as no surprise when we spied this simple combination of both brands, partnering the iPhone 4 with the image of a Leica M8 inserted inside a Griffin Reveal Case over at the MacRumors forums.

Click on the image above for the full size 1369 x 2717 pixel image; BeyondtheTech recommends the image be printed at be 2.282" x 4.528" or 5.8 cm x 11.5 cm at 600 dpi.

Rapahel Salgado (aka BeyondtheTech): I took the image and with the magic and efficiency of Photoshop, I proportioned it to the dimensions of the iPhone 4, stretching a few things around, especially to accommodate the place where the rear camera and LED flash would line up. I also removed the "M8" model name and replaced it with an "iP 4" as well as the Leica name to Apple. Lastly, I changed where it said "LEICA" in the lens to "IPHONE."

I printed it out from my Canon photo printer and cut it so it lined up nicely in the inside of the Griffin Reveal's clear backside, used an Exacto knife to cut out the rear camera and LED flash area, and topped the edges with a black permanent marker to hide the edges of white photo paper.
