    Why use plastic? They should use brushed aluminium.
    Looks good in black AND silver.

    I think aluminum not as strong as high impact plastic; aluminum will bend and dent lol. It can be alot stronger if its an alloy, but thats where the $$$ come in... i rather have a boring black plastic for a really reasonable affordable price!

    It will look less "professional", I guess. I wouldn't even consider a using big DSLR in pastel colors.

    Should not be difficult. Its only the colour of the chassis body, so no re-tooling is required in the production line. Probably the risk factor is excessive inventory.
