My 35mm cameras take a certain amount of abuse - not to mention wet, muddy and greasy environments. All that wipes off a Nikon with a paper towel and some Windex.

I'm not at all sure how a veneered camera is going to look after a bit of use. Or the effect of a Windex wipe-down.

But I guess the people who would buy these [and assuming the whole thing isn't some joke] wouldn't really use them for taking pictures.

The cameras don't look like bling. If I had seen one I would assume a nice afternoon's DIY.
