Does anybody use a white G3? Can you show a picture of it?

    I'm thinking about purchasing a G3. However, the black and the brown versions are out of stock everywhere. If some forum members use a white G3, can you please post pictures of it? I need to know how it looks in real life before purchase.

    Here is my white G3, and I have no regrets about it. I always get stopped and asked what kind of camera I have.

    Thanks. Frankly speaking, I don't like the silver parts... Also it's a bit too flashy for my tastes — I do street a lot and want to shoot as discreetly as possible.

    Seems like I need to handle one before buying.

    I have the red one and love it, but don't have another camera to take a photo of it.
    It's red and black.

    I'd love a white one with black detailing..stormtrooper style (I believe Pentax had a K-R model like that).

    Same here, I had hoped the silver details would be black. I ended up going with the red.

    I love shooting street, and frankly I've never had any issues. the camera is not that big. and even though it's white, people don't notice until it's hanging off my neck or I have a big legacy lens like the one with on the pic. But everyone has their own taste, I actually love the silver accents, I thought I was not going to like it, but in person it stole my heart. To me it's like a beefier GF2, so I don't consider it big and distracting, even with the white color.

    Even though I prefer the white G3 to the other colors, I believe it is the only one that has a glossy grip. Take that into consideration if it means anything to you.

    I'm not real fond of the silver accents myself - my white g3 is not nearly as sexy as my white gf1

    Very nice looking! I do find white cameras attractive. But I generally end up with black ones anyway given that they are a better match to most lenses. And more stealthy.

    I still think the red one would look even better with a black rubber piece on the grip rather than the red one.
