For its latest collaboration, legendary camera manufacturer Leica has linked up with the government of Kumamoto, a prefecture in the central part of Japan, on a special edition C-Lux camera clad with the Kumamon mascot. The Kumamon mascot was originally commissioned by the government as part of a tourism campaign but has since become a stylish staple for the country as a whole.

Clad with gold-toned panels that contrast beautifully against the black body, the camera comes with a 20-megapixel sensor with 4K video capabilities along with a 15x optical zoom lens and an easy-to-navigate touchscreen.

Limited to just 40 examples worldwide, you'll have to visit a Leica store in Japan to score at retail.
