To you or anyone, where did the "kiss" name come from, for the Rebel line in Europe? Is it meant to market to certain people, and if so, which people? In America they could almost use "kiss" also, if for no other reason than almost nobody in the potential customer base, would associate it with the rock band. They're too young, and even their parents are almost too young too, lol. To me, "rebel" seems more fitting, but maybe that's just because I'm accustomed to the name and the line over time.
Actually, "kiss" is the Asian name for Rebel series. In Europe we have D series - 300D-700D, 1000D-1200D and 100D aka SL1.
My mistake. Where did it come from, if you know?
Could be the same place all weird Japanese stuff comes from .
Haha, that is not very reverent of the Japanese, who design and build your cameras...
... and I love my Japanese cameras
. I just don't understand some design and marketing decisions they make. Like my 6D having 1/180sec flash sync and that option is not available if the flash is not attached to the camera, so I have to use 1/160sec shutter speed with my non-TTL triggers. Not a big deal, but still...
Selling lenses (non-L) without a piece of plastic called "lens hood" and asking an unreasonable amount of money for such accessories (like $70 for a hood for the 35/2 IS USM) is beyond my logic as well
. Canon started implementing "the pinch cap technology" lately, so there is hope
