Does Canon white touch-up paint exist?

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Donald Specker, May 27, 2005.

  1. I have an L telephoto that's pretty mint but has a few spots of white paint
    missing from my camera bag. Can that paint be found?

    Carefully empty the camera bag of equipment, and you will probably
    find the missing paint flakes in the bottom of the bag. They can be
    refitted with a good general purpose contact adhesive.

    Just take out some nail polish and paint the whole thing pink so it'll
    match your handbag.

    Damn Canon users..... I hope they're not *all* girlymen!

    But then you'd want to paint it black, wouldn't you?

    Funny, I was just thinking about white lenses yesterday. I really don't
    care for them, they're too conspicuous. I could possibly be tempted to
    paint mine black, other than re-labelling it with tiny letters, and of
    course the greatly lowered resale value.

    Otherwise, I'm actually kind of out of my black kick nowadays. Mostly.

    be tempted to paint mine black, other than re-
    Some wildlife shooters have problems with big white lenses, for obvious
    reasons. You can get camouflage tape that can be wrapped round the lens and
    peels off with no residue, or lens 'socks' that fit snuggly. I wonder if
    either of these is available in black? Two of my lenses are white, and a
    couple more are silver, and I'm not crazy about it either, though I can see
    the logic about heat absorbtion in the case of the really big glass.
    Mostly, huh? ;-)

    First time i went out with my 70-200f4L i was mistaken for a press
    photographer. <vbg> However the downside is that this has "steal me" all
    over it. I had customers who didn't want expensive bags or bags that had
    the brand name on it.
    "I want one that looks like the contents are cheap n nasty too"

    "Ah not a problem perhaps one of the jessops monaco range."

    People were trying to get the eos 300D in black so that they would look more
    professional. Jessops even had the cheek to charge £150 extra for it though
    they did include the battery grip (costs £150).No you can't buy them

    I think that they should be available in white and black.

    Ahem. Nikon offer a choice of colours for their top end teles. I
    specifically ordered black when I got my 70-200mm f/2.8 VR.

    Did you accidently wash it with a red sock? Hate it when that happens...

    No, I think it was something about rose colored glass... You know the kind
    that makes everything appear as it truly is?

    Canon service have the touch-up paint, and you should be able to
    get it from them. Can't find a part number for you :( sorry.
