came back from harbour front canon showroom. there was this transparent eos 1n on display. i was thinking: is there anyway we can ask canon to custom make "transparent" bodies? then we would have the funkiest toys in town (which will be more snazzy than zek's idea of " white body") :cool: :bsmilie:

clive, I hate your avatar!!! :mad:

Would you really want to trade your lovely metal 1N body for a plastic transparent one? Novelty value or not, I would much rather have a metal body.

I think it might work for prosumer or consumer digital cameras but for DSLRs or SLRs, I think this novelty will not pay off.

actually if canon made the bodies out of makrolon plastic.......it would be as strong as an alu case but clear like a plastic bosy........that would be an option for those looking for the strength of metal but weight of plastic with coolness of a transparent body..........

hehehehe..no lah just my view only..coz most pple start off with film slr then move on to dslr and/or digicam

digital slr came out somewhere in yr 1999...very expensive..so we using film one had to wait wait wait until prices drop then only now got chance to play with dslr..keke! =)


then got another type of user is they are younger than us (we are genX. they are..genY? gen Z? shld be..lolz)and first thing they use is digicam. then they dunno whether to advance to film or dslr..hehe
