The world’s first white camera?

Some boys painted their faces, I painted my camera. I look crap in make-up anyway. Everyone on the club scene in the 80’s strove to be different, an original identity was highly prized. One day I dropped my camera in a puddle and the water didn’t get into the lens or other parts of the camera so I had the idea to spray it with car paint. People were fascinated by it and it helped me convince others it would be worth being photographed by me. I went through three cameras and painted them all white. I was always dropping them even though they were beautifully balanced to hold. I carried one everywhere….and dropped them everywhere too.
Thirty or so years later you can now get white camera’s in the small digital pocket camera’s but still no white SLR’s.
