Wish that your camera wasn't so… boring? Now you can pimp up and protect your camera, drone or action cam with these cool and colorful new skins from Camskns. 

Adding some visual flair to your camera has traditionally meant sticking it in a brightly colored, rubberized one-piece stretchy skin – not always the most elegant or unobtrusive solution. However, Camskns are precision-cut adhesive vinyl stickers that perfectly cover the best Canon cameras (opens in new tab), best Nikon cameras (opens in new tab), best Sony cameras (opens in new tab), and even the best GoPro cameras (opens in new tab) and best DJI drones (opens in new tab) for a factory-fresh finish. 

In fact, you can even get skins that cover popular Canon, Sony, Sigma and Tamron lenses so that you can make sure your glass matches your body. There's a good range of cool, colorful and just plain eye-catching skin colors and patterns available to ensure that you really stand out. 

From the Canon EOS R5 (opens in new tab) and Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM (opens in new tab) to the Sony A7R IV and Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 AF DG DN Art (opens in new tab), and the Nikon D750 (opens in new tab) to the GoPro Hero 9 (opens in new tab) to the DJI Mavic Air 2 (opens in new tab), now you can customize virtually every bit of your camera kit.

Camskns uses 3M's "world class" vinyl wraps to ensure protection against everyday use, and says that there's zero residue when removing the skin if you need to take it off later down the line.

Apparently they're also easy to apply, and should take roughly 30 minutes or more depending on your dexterity. Though we'd wager that the skin application requires considerable patience and attention to detail, as each skin is comprised of multiple sections to ensure perfect coverage.

Founder and CEO of Camskns, Colin Dougherty, explains the thought process behind his colorful camera skins, stating that every photographer / videographer has a personality, so he thought it would be amazing to give their camera one as well. He believed that this would not only make them stand out, but would also provide cover for their precious tool.

“Camskns was created out of a need to be different. I was tired of trying to stand out with my photography while having a camera that blended in. There had been zero innovation in giving your camera some personality and I imagined so much more that could be done to improve. After many prototypes, Camskns was born!”
