Title: Canon EOS Rebel SL1/Kiss X7 in White
Post by: Canon Rumors on November 14, 2013, 08:26:52 AM

Isn’t she pretty?

Below are some images of the new Canon EOS X7 in white. I personally would like a white 40mm f/2.8 STM!


All the specs of the camera are the same, we’re just talking a new paint job here.

In case there is a problem with the rubber, will it turn black (instead of white on black bodies) ???  ;-)

"White and grey... you are the one
Only you 'neath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you... gray and white."  ;)

Not for me. I considered the 100D as a small backup DSLR, but if then only in black.

I just realised why this camera makes perfect sense for Canon:

Customer: "I bought this pretty white camera for Christmas with a lovely white lens. Now I need something longer, but it just has to be in white; do you have any available?"

Canon dealer "Step right this way!"

The white might be useful too in hot sunny regions/at sunny days because it keeps the camera cooler. Not that I live in a sun flooded region but in the summer this might be a problem.

Yes, yes, yes -  and behind a 5.6 400 too!

The retro look has limited appeal.  I'm old enough to have actually used a camera when they were of this design and I must say I don't miss the non-ergonomic feel of them.  I'm taken in by the nostalgia but I certainly wouldn't want to use it on a regular basis. 
To the topic at hand though, I personally am not fond of the snowy treatment.  Next thing you know, Canon will be offering their rebels in every colour like they did their P&S line in order to garner more sales.  As long as they leave the 5 series line alone I'm ok with that.

If that camera had been fitted with a built-in EVF, on sensor phase detect-AF and a better hand-grip, it may well have been more of a success. To be honest, it would have sold a lot better had it been fitted with an EF mount!

I actually don't think it's that bad - perhaps because I had  low expectations? Although the small size and white color kind of makes it look like a toy.

If Canon is after the customer who used to buy point and shoot cameras, then offering DSLR's in multiple colors makes a LOT of sense!

My Wife just got the SL1 several months ago... I would assume that she would be the type of person that this would be targeted for (someone who is more concerned with looks rather than features/functionality.. etc).  She doesn't care for the white.

In regards to the DF... As a child I would have loved this camera... all the knobs and the tiny little numbers scrawled on them.  And I can understand why people are still attracted to this.  But let's face it... it has nothing to do with functionality or versatility. It's all about the looks.  Again... it is for those who are more impressed by the looks... or who perhaps feel a  bit of nostalgia.   Again... not for me.. :-) 

I am not putting any of this down... for those who like it ... it's a great thing... but for me... NO.

I have to say that I am extremely tempted to get that 40mm in white and mount it to a 1Dx then turn up at the local sports arena to take shots of the big game alongside all the other 1Dxs and white lenses.

It would be a nice kit if they offered that. I don't mind the colour very much, but the lenses as such would be a nice combination. A white 22mm on my 5D MkIII would look kind of cool and be a nice wide option.

Could you imagine the outcry if Canon decided to go white with all of its range (from 100D to 1DX) and updating ALL their lenses to white to match?

This forum would implode.  ;D

Hideous :o (except for the black one) ... personally I think the model names "100D", "700D" etc look a lot more elegant then the american and japanese name SL i/kiss x or t5i etc ... those letters and fonts make the camera look a little too pedestrian.

Agree; either that or a botched attempt to match (or both).  The photos suggest it's white, not the ugly shade of washed-out beige inflicted on those marvelous lenses.  Then again, it probably doesn't matter - the SL-1 is a bit small for those lenses; it works best with primes.

I wish they would make an off-white pancake. After spending a week in California, the 40mm is what I used almost the entire time (on a 5D2 with grip), just because it makes the camera so much more compact. The only thing the current pancake is missing is weather sealing and a little bit of light gathering. A 40mmf2L is pretty much my dream walk around lens right now (that and a 24-70f2 zoom).

Cameras that used film needed black bodies to better protect the sensitized film, against stray light  Since pretty much all the pros were using black colored bodies, black became synonymous with "professional" .... This just continued on to the digital world ... also, black generally is considered "professional" even in other fields e.g. wearing a black suit is generally considered "serious and professional" ... but I don't think any technical aspect stops manufacturers from producing colored DSLR's, other than the fact that most people will not opt for colored DSLRs ... I know I would never buy a white, pink, green etc DSLR bodies ... so I suppose it is just a marketing decision now.

The proportions are all off on the Nikon DF.  The <A HREF="https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=nikon+FM-3a">FM-3a looked great</A>.  The DF looks like the basterd child of an F4 and a Zenit.

I have to agree. I actually don't mind the colour. If they released a 5D3 and maybe the 24-70 f4 kit in white i would buy it.

Sure its going to get dirty but then again black cameras don't tend to stay "out of the box" black for very long either.

I actually like the white.  I bought the EOS M in white when it went on sale.

Now if you want to see a really ugly color for a DSLR and lenses, check out this custom painted Nikon setup.

If this was a weathersealed 'L' version of the 100D/SL1, then I would be interested.

So far, no announcement in Europe. No 100D in white.

Okay, I'll ask:
Why are cameras black, anyhow?
Cameras that used film needed black bodies to better protect the sensitized film, against stray light  Since pretty much all the pros were using black colored bodies, black became synonymous with "professional" .... This just continued on to the digital world ... also, black generally is considered "professional" even in other fields e.g. wearing a black suit is generally considered "serious and professional" ... but I don't think any technical aspect stops manufacturers from producing colored DSLR's, other than the fact that most people will not opt for colored DSLRs ... I know I would never buy a white, pink, green etc DSLR bodies ... so I suppose it is just a marketing decision now.

When you are trying to look at a limited scene within a broader field, having the "surround" (camera body) darker than the target scene( viewfinder, LCD, etc.) is much easier on the eye than having the scene surrounded with a glaring bright field.

A glossy-finish pure white makes just such a reflective glaring border around what you are trying to view with the least possible interference to your vision.

Consider the dark shields around color-critical monitors for accurate viewing while doing color evaluation that really matters.

Is a bright shiny white object directly in your view something that you want to be trying to look through or around?

To my jaded eye, this white camera smacks of something that would/will appeal to the cutesey pre-teen plastic-is-fantastic crowd. (as someone noted above, …think "Hello Kitty".)

I think this is a camera for apple-user...useless, but white ;)

Ok, just kidding... I like the idea of a 40mm 2.8 STM L, maybe I'll get one and make a red ring onto it.

Okay, so there must be more to this white thing than we in the west understand.

If you are an Indian, (like me who has worked in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangaluru & Calcutta), trust me you will know ... coz there are a lot of people, in those cities, urinating on the walls.

Okay..  Not lame.  Totally wrong.  I actually like it.  I don't think I'd buy a camera in white.  But it's certainly stylish. Wouldn't mind a pro dslr with some Ferrari red accents  :-P

</strong>Below are some images of the new Canon EOS X7 in white. I personally would like a white 40mm f/2.8 STM!</p>
<p>All the specs of the camera are the same, we’re just talking a new paint job here.</p>

Status?

When the elite or "ruling class" in any culture wishes to wear the purest white, no problem, …they won't be doing anything which will soil their clothes.

Think "dress whites" in the U.S. navy, priestly robes, temple virgins, etc. ( ...not to mention white hats on the good cowboys  :P )

Besides, if all self respecting ghosts weren't white, how could they scare anyone in the dark?

Well if it's anything like my gloss painting it will be totally waterproof..... Only thing is you won't be able to get the battery and SD card in or out!  :o
