Thin film lamination is probably the better choice. Can choose different designs too, (Disney characters anyone), and it's reversible.

Patricia, I don't know. That would make a good question for Panasonic.

Am I the only one that thinks the silver camera looks much nicer than the black one? The black one kind of looks cheap, like a Fisher Price toy IMHO.

You shouldn't say that about the great Black Mamba. It's not nice. :-))

Let me offer you some consolation. I don't mind the silver one as well, heck, all my cams are silver; but I sure like black.

PS: both my car and motorcycle are silver. Hope this helps. :-))

Ouch. Did someone really say that about the Black Mamba? And I was trying to be so diplomatic in pointing out how nice the Silver Shadow looks with my titanium powerbook.

I havent seen any official figures yet but my guess is, the silver must have outsold the black by at least 20 to 1. The reason. I think the availability ratio between silver and black is something like 100:1.

I feel the black mamba would have looked even cooler if not for that grayish focus ring.

Actually, the black version is cool-looking in person. Black makes it look even more compact - and all that power in a small package adds to the coolness. For titanium powerbook owners, however, I highly recommend silver (it's really not silver - the exterior of the lcd looks like titanium and the eyepiece and grip on the right hand side are almost the same color as the keyboard on the powerbook). Maybe I'll start calling it the Titanium Tiger instead of the Silver Shadow. How's that for hype?

Titanium Tiger is very good hype, but I'm afraid that Black Mamba still sounds better. :-))

Too bad there is not one in yellow and black. It could be called "The Killer Bee".

Now that's a good one. Don't go suggesting this to Panasonic. They might get an idea, and then Heaven help us all. :-))

Though I'm sure many people would end up buying such a bee-looking cam. Just to bee different. ;))

Out of topic but anyway.

I got info from Bic Camera (one of the biggest electronic retailers in Japan) that regular production of the GS100K has ended and they dont have any stock at the moment. Limited stocks of the cam would still be made available for a while of course.

Why would Panasonic do that?

Perhaps Pany doesnt want to reduce the price of the GS100 any further and compete with the upcoming GS200.
