The Rebel has been called "Kiss" in Japan for about 10-15 years I think. They won't call a black-bodied Rebel or 300D a "Kiss" if it sells outside of Japan. Nothing has changed there.
I remember a quote from Ken Rockwell that slammed the 300D for being silver and not looking pro... so those people who buy the black Rebels are suddenly more pro than the silver users- with the same camera... LOL!
I do like the sleeker black look, but the silver was pretty cool too.

Well, I would like to buy Canon 300D at first, however, the siliver body made me hesistate. However, one of the Airliners.net photographer Anthony Cheng asked me to wait for Nikon D70. And here I have bought a Nikon D70. I think black body is better than Silver body.

But would a real man use a camera called a Kiss?
Maybe a man who is comfortable with his sexuality???
Well, as long as you're sure you're gay, then I guess it's OK Hey, you know I'm just kidding with you! From what others have said, it doesn't sound as though this version will be available outside Japan.

Wow...it's amazing how many of you are concerned with the looks of your equipment. I'm guessing some of you chose Canon so you could use a white lens too, right (and I'm talking about for the color only)? To me, it's what comes out of my camera that really matters...
