1. you don't have to defend every crappy product by Canon. :-)
2. compared to the number and frequency of your posts i still got some catching up to do. :-)
3. Do you know for sure, in which markets Canon will bless customers with their "white kiss"?
A) Korea+Japan only B) all of Asia C) other areas outside Asia ... which ones?
If yes, I guess you must be a Canon employee or paid lobbyist.
If no, you can't exclude me from the intended target group just yet :-)
1. You don't have to denigrate every Canon product that comes out, yet you seem to do so.
2. Keep working at it. Try saying something meaningful and relevant with many of your posts, that would be a refreshing change.
3. I can pretty much guarantee you won't be buying a white Kiss locally, unless you live in Japan. Kiss is the domestic branding for their entry level bodies, although there is an 'export' version that differs in the languages available. Of course, they might bring a white 100D to your market…if they do so, I look forward to a fresh round of pointless complaints from you.
But you are right, I am not interested in this Canon kiss ... no matter what color. I just find it a waste of resources to develop, build and sell a color-variations of it, instead of delivering more functionality in the product. For example, built-in WiFi and direct, seamless integration with social media would have probably been an even more interesting feature for a much larger target group, bringing much more money to Canon's coffers.
You seem to have missed the main points. First off, consider the 'resources' expended here. Canon already makes white versions of several lines of cameras, so they have a formula for white plastic. They already have molds for the casing. Perhaps you missed the fact that the Rebel T3 comes in three colors (but not white) in addition to black…it's not like they haven't done this before.
Second, they're doing this because they think a white Kiss/100D will make money
. How do you conclude that it's a 'waste'? The fact that they're able to generate additional profit from a product with essentially no additional R&D expenditure means even more money
. More money for Canon means potentially more resources for R&D, not less. I trust you're aware that R&D for Canon products you might find intersting (assuming there are any) is going to be funded in part by profit from sales of entry level cameras.
