The Leica i9 is Designed for iPhone Shutterbugs

Apple and luxury camera maker Leica have joined forces, thanks to the imaginative minds over at Black Design Associates who have created the Leica i9. The Leica i9 is a conceptual camera case for the iPhone that both protects the iPhone from damage and enhances the quality of its pictures.

The Leica i9 would instantly improve iPhone photos by adding a "compact optical zoom, dedicated aperture and shutter dials, flash and light meter." This case would be great for the mass amount of iPhone shutterbugs who feel the need to clog the Internet with their five megapixel pieces of art. The Leica i9 is still just a concept, but here's hoping that Leica or Apple or both pick up on this and make it a reality.
