Hand stitched laser cut action camera case
In almost every sport and active lifestyle pursuit, you will find people strapping on action cameras to document their exploits. These cameras have transformed the way outdoor activities are captured and shared in recent years, and because they provide broadcast quality results at bargain prices, action cameras have become an important piece of kit for professionals and amateurs alike.
While the action cameras themselves tend to be diminutive and relatively discreet, there may still be times when the camera is handy to have around without the need for underwater housings or fancy mounting systems. So what options are out there for the more relaxed uses of an action camera?

Pictured above is a laser cut leather case for a popular budget-level action camera. Designed by Seoul-based Architect Eduardo Chamorro, the laser cut protective sleeve will give minor protection from bumps and scratches and it is also valuable as a lighthearted way of creating a different visual presence for the camera.
How can this help your brand?
If you deal with people engaging in an active lifestyle, there is a good chance that many of them already own (and use) an action camera. There is also a high probability that these users care about how they look, and this will extend to their techno gear – it kind of goes along with the territory. Creating a custom accessory for an action camera will provide a strong visual reference that differentiates from the classic robust utility of most action camera designs.
Instead of a cheap silicon overmold, a laser cut action camera case can provide a visually appealing option for when the camera is not actually in action. The example from Eduardo is held together with crafty looking hand-stitched yarn, which adds a homely aesthetic that helps to soften the hardcore ‘action camera’ styling of the product. There is also scope to use laser etching to add text, logos, brand messaging or other customisations to the leather surface.
