Playboy, Hello Kitty, and Leica threesomes for a camera

What would happen if you combine Hugh Hefner’s soft-porn empire, a Japanese kawaii character for kids, and a camera manufacturer? You get the ultra-limited edition Leica C.

We’ve seen some limited edition cameras from Leica before, but this one will make a lot of people have a second look at the device. The camera, basically a Leica C, is imprinted with a winking Hello Kitty holding a camera while wearing the iconic Playboy bunny ears.

This uncommon collaboration began from the minds of a French online store Colette. The collector’s item is now on sale for $1200 (approx. Php53,000 — pretty steep, but the original Leica C will already cost you about Php31,000). Along with the camera are other Playboy x Hello Kitty products including smartphone cases, speakers, lighters, lollipops, and many other random merchandise.

Here are some of Leica C‘s specs:

12.1MP 1/1.7-inch Live MOS sensor
Leica DC Vario-Summicron 6-42.8mm f/2-5.9 lens
1/4000 shutter speed
80-12800 ISO
1920 x 1080 video recording
Wi-Fi
3-inch 920K dots LCD monitor

“People thought I was crazy, but now everyone agrees they look amazing together,” said Sarah Andelman, founder of Colette, as interviewed by Style.com.

The reason why this specific model is rare (aside from the fact that there’s not a big chance of a Playboy/Hello Kitty combo to happen again) is because only 10 cameras were produced for this edition. So if you’re a camera collector and would like to secure your own ‘Playboy Kitty’ camera, then head on over to Colette’s website right away.
