Would you pimp your camera out with a permanent design?

I like Wonderpuss Octopuss's painted cameras

That camera looks like a bag of Skittles exploded on it! :rofl:

Not for me, just a little to flashy for my taste.

If they were done up with a red design I'd be more interested. I'd give it a "7"

There was one on here a week or so ago that the guy had painted OD green. I thought he did a great job but I wouldn't do it to one of mine. I see a few different cameras that come in colors, wouldn't buy one. Maybe I'm just old but I think a camera should be black! My old Nikon FG was black with some chrome trim, tasteful! that yellow thing I wouldn't have!

Not question. Painting your camera like that is claimed to make photography more fun. How does it do that?

I still think that's a bit steep for some stickers to cover your camera.

That's just asking for your camera to get stolen

There is something beautiful about keeping photography pure....and having a stealth clean black camera is that way for a reason. I don't want to look like i am holding a kids toy when taking a picture...to me this is obnoxious and over the top...and this is coming from a guy who is tattooed one both arms and one half my body. :)

To live without risk is to risk not living! Oh...life IS a trip too! :)

Good luck with finding a buyer for that when you want to sell it.

Reminds me of tiger force from old GI joe days.
