Packaging & Details
The skin comes in a traditional Capes India packaging, which includes a brown envelope and skins inside a lock and seals back with Micro-fiber cloth and QR Code for the tutorial. There is also a squeegee as well to apply and press the skin properly at the corners where your fingers cannot reach. Due to complex parts, it feels like a challenging task to apply. But as you follow the instructions and solve that jigsaw puzzle part by piece, it becomes easier to apply.
There are a lot of textures you can choose from on the Capes India Website. Right from Storm to Black Carbon Fiber, there is a lot you can choose from. All of the skins are made from 3M Materials.
The skins, as we said above, need to be applied in steps as given in the tutorial. Alternatively, if you are experienced enough, you can figure out and apply on your own too. The application is easy and doesn’t forget to use the dryer at regular intervals. Once applied, warm it again and rub the surfaces with a cloth to smooth all edges down.
Accuracy & Precision
We tried the camera skins on SONY Alpha Camera Mark III. The fit is excellent with in-line precision—no overlaps or gaps at any place across the skin and phone. Yeah, we did mess up a few edges while applying as in pictures, though. The included cloth is sort of ok-ish, in our opinion. You might end up scratching your skin while doing the aggressive rubbing action against friction. In our usage, other than day-to-day wear and tear, the skin has held up pretty well.
It has been more than a month we have applied the Camera Skins; it has held up pretty well. All of the corners have held pretty wear, and there are not many signs of wear and aging. This would depend upon person to person depending upon your habits and the places you store. The skin near the display and toggle buttons have held pretty well too. All in all, the skins have appropriately held up till now.
In a crowd, people do appreciate the same ask which skin is that which creates a good impression.
