E-P1 leatherette kit arrived

November 11th, 2009 (07:07 pm)

Today I received the custom leatherette body kit for the Olympus PEN E-P1, manufactured by Aki Asahi Custom Camera Covers in Japan. I had seen it on pictures before, but actually having it applied to my E-P1 makes it look absolutely fabulous!

But this body kit, which by the way fits neatly to the pattern on the grip, not only makes the camera look more like a classical rangefinder, it also improves handling of the camera since you can no longer slip from the shiny metal. Also - no more ugly fingerprints!

Applying the kit was really easy, and making the edges a little wet really helped aligning it. Then, it just slipped onto the body. Fits perfectly. Thanks, Aki Asahi! :-)
