Canon Japan Teases a White Kiss
« on: November 11, 2013, 07:50:46 AM »

From Canon Japan’s Facebook

Canon Japan is now teasing us with a little promo called “White Kiss”. As you probably know, Rebel level cameras in Japan are called “Kiss”. So this is another sign that Canon will be launching a white Rebel of some kind. We’re not sure if this will be a global product, or just in select countries.

If a white version of existing model, why not released before? It seems to be a new model (SL2) white, but it will have a black version too. And hopefully, the same sensor 70D.

I think it's too soon for an SL2.   Might have been a marketing decision to delay the release of the white model, or it could've been production issues (remember the issues that Apple had with the white iPhone 4 a couple of years back - and Apple launched an ad campaign when they finally got their act together for that, as well).

At least they're not wasting as much R&D  investment on a white Rebel as Nikon did on the Df.  Sure, it'll be a niche  product of little interest to this crowd, but they'll make a few Yen on it.

Now wait a second!  Do I remember a while back they had problems with the grip rubber turning white?  I wonder if they had a big supply of that rubber they needed to use up ... :D

Oh yes, Kai! that Chinese/Hongkong dude with an English accent ... he is quite funny - most of the time ... apparently his youtube channel is the most watched photography site on the planet.

And here I thought that the Korean teaser was going to result in the SL X (SL1 body with 1D X sensor).  :P  Take note, Canon, a brilliant idea and perfect name.

Wow. A white rebel. Is canon serious? This is big news? Canon better get back to innovating again. Cause making a big deal about a color change is kinda lame.

Now they only have to price it like the 7D2 (it's not a FF, so it can't be priced like the Df) and the deal is struck.
