DigitalRev TV publishes video guide to painting a DSLR pink

Summary:It's one thing to customize your camera with a favorite lens, or perhaps an aesthetic detail like a carrying strap with a pattern. It's something else when you actually want to take apart and paint a digital SLR camera, and it's completely nutty to paint it hot pink. But that's what someone over at DigitalRev actually did.

It's one thing to customize your camera with a favorite lens, or perhaps an aesthetic detail like a carrying strap with a pattern. It's something else when you actually want to take apart and paint a digital SLR camera, and it's completely nutty to paint it hot pink.

But that's what someone over at DigitalRev actually did.

The Hong Kong-based photo site routinely publishes videos with how-to guides and reviews. In this particular case, it caught my eye, mainly because how can one miss that hideous Barbie-Dream-House color on a Nikon D90?

You can watch the whole video over on their website, including an interesting look for both photo novices and pros alike at what the insides of a DSLR look like. I do NOT recommend anyone do this at home, unless you're a professional camera repair person and/or you have a DSLR you don't care about ruining. There's also a little thing called electric shock to watch out for when taking apart a camera.

Happy watching.
