Camerabody cover skins for 645D?

I just found this one, and maybe that is old news to everyone.

Home | Discovered




It is only in Canon and Nikon at the time. It is a Dutch company and I maild them about possabillity's. Any thoughts about this for either K-5, K-r or 645D?

Greetings Ron.

talk about giving people a false sense of security.I know some people like to treat their cameras as more of an investment than a camera. I prefer to treat my cameras like cameras - because they are replaceable, if they get dents or have a few scratches it is because they have done a good job.

Interesting idea, but it looks like it would make spinning the e-dial very difficult.

A friend of mine has this on his 550D, I asked it what's that for his reply was, it was to protect it from the weather and gives it a little more grippy feel.

definately interesting but for me no need.

You omitted the smiley. This skin looks like it covers the parts of the camera body that don't need covering.

All area's of the camera need protecting.

No, I'm not kidding. I used my K20d intensively for 3 years. 17320 shutter actuations. And when I sold it, the buyer didn't believe it was previously owned. Only the shuttercount proved. So he was happy with the purchase.

Such a protective skin would give me lots of piece of mind. Sadly, it's only for canikon.
