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.

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.

Isn’t she pretty?

Hmm...nope. Looks like an eye-sore to me. But, to each his own...

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

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?

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

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
