Slight off topic thinking out loud.
Names we'll prob never see from Canon -
2D - can you imagine a 2D2? Sounds too much like a star wars character.
3D - do we need special glasses or what? Also too close to nintendo 3DS.
4D - four also reads as death in Japanese.
8D - 2 x 4 = 8 still a multiple of four. Superstition may keep this name at bay! Also sounds like you're saying 80.
10D - we already had it. Could make a comeback though.
You can see why they chose 1, 5, 6 and 7 now. Maybe they're runnin out of numbers?
I really hope they don't use random made up words instead!
Hi Zv and colleagues.
My first post on here I think! For some reason my last post and pics never uploaded even though I was within the MP upload size constraint!
In my experience, the Japanese are never random about anything! I worked for them for eighteen months and they are more likely to go quiet for months, then just pop up suddenly and spring something! Sounds typical canon to me.
Then they are probably likely to use some spiritual or historically significant (to them) type name!
So that would make for the following grades:
1Dx = King
5D3 = Shogun
7D = Daimyo
xxD = Samurai
xxxD = Noble
M Class = Elite
I guess that makes the power shot etc the Peasant a,b,c or maybe something a bit cooler sounding!
1Dx = Ameterasu
5D3 = Onnotangu
7D = Qamar
xxD = Naga
xxxD = Kami
M Class = Qatol
I guess that makes the powershot etc the Jade, Bright Eyes, Pale Eyes or again, maybe something a bit cooler sounding!
Looking at these names... The KISS doesnt seem so bad! LOL :-)
