    I think you'll see plenty of those tethered to white Macbooks.

    Raise your hand if you started humming The Imperial March.

    I was actually listening to Weird Al Yankovic's The saga begins song when i opened and posted this haha.

    And yes, i agree that these and White Macs will be good friends soon enough.

    Released just in time for Apple to discontinue the white macs.....

    I think they should have done a silvered Pentax so we can revive the whole "which looks professional Black versus Chrome" threads... from many years ago.
     
  8. I think it's cute.

    Well that's a bit of an extreme reaction, isn't it? It's just one little bottom-rung camera. Don't let it get to you.

    I've decided that when I buy a new body I will seriously consider buying an airbrush kit to beautify my K10 body. I'm not sure if corny flames are the way to go or if something bright and highkey would be better.

    I am very serious about that. I will do it when the time comes. ;)
     
  10. I'm with you, I think customized cameras are cool. I don't care about looking super-serious, my images speak louder than my look.

    In the Leica community, a lot of people customize their cameras (Leica even offers it as a service called À La Carte). Even more Leica users hate the customized cameras.

    ...and some are quite extreme...

    Actually, it does not look too bad with the white kit lens. I guess it won't look so good with any other (black) lens; or maybe it is just for people who will never buy any other lens...

    It seems like it would be a pain to keep clean. I'm too anal about that stuff, I couldn't own it.
