Can't Afford Crystals? How about Gold or Silver Colored Trim?

An enterprising Korean eBay seller, The Polar Bear House, which specializes in retailing decorative skins for tech devices, is selling gold and silver "metal decoration and LCD protector kits" ($22.95 each) to compliment your Pentax DSLR (*ist or K10D models). I believe a mental requirement is that you feel the need for fancier camera trimming. Honestly, I have never, ever felt that need. But maybe your camera feels differently and wants to dress up for December holiday occasions. Or maybe your camera wants to go out on Halloween as a Battlestar Galactica prop.


Actually, these product sample shots are good. The marketing photos make it look like their product is something that comes stock on the camera, but I wonder if the trim is harder to apply than it looks. I remember all those stickers and water slide decals I applied to models and toys as a kid, and I'm pretty sure almost all of them never looked as good as they did in photos on the box. Mind you, these look like laser cut metal, so they may be easier to affix. You just have to be comfortable glueing things to your camera. $23 gets you the chance to find out.

LOL! I'll buy it when it includes an LED strip for the PENTAX logo where the lights light up sequentially from side to side :-)
