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.

it might look cool hanging over my shoulder to match my white hat, tie, belt, spats and shoes while I dance Gangnam Style.  :P
Ha ha ha ha  ;D

"Kiss X7", sounds and looks a bit too kinky, for my taste.

Unfortunately, as I live in Japan I had to buy a Kiss X4 as my first DSLR. I always referred to it as a T2i or 550D. Eventually had to man up and get a 7D!

I've never been one for taping a camera up but if I were to start it would be to hide that ridiculous name.
I always wondered about that name coz, I have many Japanese colleagues in my office and my immediate boss is Japanese (so were my 2 previous bosses before him) but none of them seem the kind who like such mushy/girly names .... but do the Japanese, in Japan, prefer "Kiss X" whatever instead of say 700D or 100D etc? (for that matter I don't get why the american versions are called "t5i" "sl1" etc (those names also sound a bi weird), I mean they have 5D, 7D, 70D etc and then suddenly the entry level DSLR's are named with strange robotic sounding names ... what's up with that!

The appeal of the a7R to Sony shooters may be substantial…I bet many of the 350 of them are profoundly interested!      :P
;D

By Sony: “the pre-ordered quantities are almost 200% bigger than expected"

Ok...let see more prime lenses please :o

On that site, a member raised  an interesting point ... which I agree with and it is one of the reasons why I am apprehensive about getting any Sony gear:
"This is my biggest concern, That I’ll get the camera in Dec and then in Feb they’ll release an IBIS version and make all future lenses without IBIS after the 2 already announced. Leaving early adopters with only a couple of IS lenses"

Note: IBIS = In Body Image Stabilization

Hideous :o (except for the black one)

You're only saying that beacuse they don't come with matching lenses…   ;)
Oh God! NO! ... can't image holding a chocolate colored camera, let alone matching leness ;D ... but I can understand if some people like the red or even the chocolate colored cameras ... but what's up with the hideous neither silver nor steel colored camera :o

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.


Actually, you're a bit late to the party…   ;)



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.

A 22mm pancake lens should only make her prettier.  40mm + 22mm pancakes = yummy!
Yes, I totally agree with that. Would be perfect.
While I may not agree with this camera being pretty, I do agree that a 22mm pancake to go with the 40mm would be awesome.

I will continue to bash Canon as long as they launch silly, immature and meaningless products and try to cheat their customers for their money with them, instead of devoting their resources to develop and manufacture products that truly help us to take (technically) better pictures and/or to get the pictures we want more easily and with a higher success rate.

Go ahead and bash away, but what is the point of doing it repeatedly in this forum?
Three reasons:
1. Concern for Canon trying "to cheat their customers" (even if they are Japanese) ;D
2. Concern for ASSumptions of "canon paid lobbyists" in this forum  ;D
3. Does not approve white DSLRs, even if there's a market for it in Japan ;D
I'd rather just not read 5 or 10 more years of the same posts over and over...
I'm afraid we will have to bear with such people ... or we can hope that they post some more crazy a$$ ASSumptions and get banned from CR ;D ... even that may not be a consolation, coz they may impose their ASSumptions on us with a different avatar  :(

Thanks for the response ... thankfully my children aren't bothered about who gets a better camera, as they also use my 5D MK III whenever they want ... in fact my second son did a short 5 minute video (about water conservation) last week using the 5D MK III and got the first prize in school (the school has submitted that video to the country's 'Supreme Council for Education'). As parents my wife and I try to teach our children to share and not be possessive about material things ... so the youngest one getting a "better" camera than the eldest is not a big deal to them.

Still waiting for some of the accomplished forum members help with my query ... thanks in advance.
