According to the designer, Mr Giorgetto Giugiaro, the red line first incoporated on F3 handgrip was a style point to add a bit of flare to a pro cam that had been all in black.

Yup. It's similar to the "Cinnabar Ring" on the Sony Alphas. It's to break up the monotonous design.

I think you have too much time on your hands. You heard from whom? From where? Why should anybody bother to come up with something "creative" to explain a design feature? Unless you can come up with something more concrete, please stop spreading rumours for the sake of it.

i read it from clubsnap that theres something superstitious about the red triangle. such as the design of our very own $1 coin as to why it has 8 sides design in a circle. and my purpose is not to start a rumour or anything of that sort. i just want to know why a red triangle and if not, it should be a fun topic to talk about. and creativity is part of being a photographer isnt it?

do you notice that all high building windows have also these small triangle signs .... these are signs that the Singapore Fire Brigade have blessed the building :bsmilie::sweatsm: .... and in case of fire, they will entered from there.
Maybe Nikon designers were ex-fire brigade? :think:
