    I've been going back and forth for a week. I'm about to pull the trigger on my first M43 camera. I can't decide the color

    White
    - Sexy
    - A bit too flashy maybe
    - Very Unique

    Brown
    - Understated
    - Maybe too boring
    - Unique

    i'll choose brown, however mine is black. black in the long run will be a safer move for me.

    I have the GF1 in white, and it looks very good. I've also seen some pictures with a brown leather half-case, that looks really amazing!

    I had a brown one for three days. If I were to get one again, I'd get a white one. The brown is more of a brown mixed with eggplant purple.

    I'd choose brown. I will admit that I have a white iPhone, so the temptation for something white has been satisfied.

    Thanks for everyones help. I got white.

    When I first saw it I fell in love...went with my gut!:thumbup:
     
  10. I wish the white G3 had black accents rather than the silver. I'd still choose it over brown, but ultimately would probably choose black over both.

    Quite like the brown, never seen one in the flesh though, white is a bit 'kitchen appliance'.

    Well looks like I have more time to change my mind. I ordered it from Panasonic Direct and they just updated the order saying it could take up to 5 weeks to deliver.

    CANCELLED.

    Time to look elsewhere for the camera.

    And now everyone has me thinking brown!

    Frankly, those are the 2 best choices. You can't go wrong. I voted for white, but on a different day, I could just as easily vote for brown.

    I like that brown is a little less obvious, calls a bit less attention to itself than white does. For street photography that can be a good thing.

    I agree brown looks more stealthy (and super cool), but someone here on another thread (sorry, wish I could give credit) made the point that the white looks more consumer P&S, so actually would stand out less! :biggrin:

    All this brown feedback actually made me change my mind. Now if I panasonic would just ship faster than 5 weeks!

    It is because there is no Black option in your poll :smile: Personaly I dont want camera in other colour than black, but brown seems to be good choice for people wanting modest look while keeping high stealth factor :thumbup:

    I thought white would be a better color because it might help with the heat when outdoors? (very little i assume, but still!). I remember when i was testing my black G3 out it got quite hot in the sun moreso than my black EPL1. Esp. around the battery and the grip. I just thought if canon does it for some of their L lens, it might be something to think about on the camera body.

    I only like the Brown and White. I want it stand out, but now that i'm going brown I dont want it to stick out too much.
