    Trying to stop him would be bad, but making fun of him is fair game. Sure, he's within his rights to do this, and people are within their rights to pay if they want. However, it remains pretentious twaddle to pretend that cheap camera + CLA + a bit of veneer = precious object. And we are within our rights to say so.

    I suggest leaving about 1mm on all sides of the teplates. Leather is a bit stretchable and wood isn't. After the slightly larger veneer is cut, you can test fit it on the camera and cut off the rest. Good luck and have fun with the redo.

    The pencil-rubberband glueing technique is not pattented. You're alowed to use it if you want.

    Anyone noticed their ratings? According to their condition guide either the shutter isn't 100% accurate or the light meter isn't working. So what does cla mean to them?

    Finished the camera body! I have removed the lettering on the camera with nail remover. Bad choise, the plastic is damaged. I'm going to cover it up with custom lettering. Have to think of a name.

    Hermes editions are the über special/limited editions, and priced accordingly. Some are actually quite nice, others less so - but all very expensive.
