Japan Digicam Hunter has revealed its newest one-off repainted Leica cameras in honor of JCH’s tenth anniversary.

As famous by Kosmo Foto, the Sakura-themed Leica M4 has been hand-painted by Kanto, a specialist digital camera restorer primarily based in Tokyo, Japan. The colour and imagery is impressed by Japan’s nationwide flower, the decorative cherry blossom, often called Sakura. That is the fourth one-off digital camera Japan Digicam Hunter has created and was preceded by a Kintsugi-inspired Leica M3, a Mondrian-styled Leica PM2 and a Leica M4-P imprinted with quotes from George Orwell’s novel ‘1984’.

Bellamy Hunt, founding father of Japan Digicam Hunter, instructed Kosmo Foto ‘This [camera] was a shock for me. I mainly gave Kanto a clean sheet and instructed them to do one thing particular. They usually actually did.’ Hunt continued:

‘We truly had a little bit of a headache for locating one thing to narrate this to. As Sakura season is within the spring. However then we discovered that there’s winter Sakura and we discovered a shrine close by that had some blooming, which was good. The paint on this digital camera is beautiful.’

This digital camera, in addition to the three earlier one-off cameras, are anticipated to be accessible to buy shortly, in line with Hunt. No particular time or pricing data is accessible at the moment, nevertheless.
