Many of us know that feeling. That gut punch of shock and denial as we watch our camera fall from our grip or swing to the earth from an unsecured tripod. We’ve watched as it impacted with the ground with a hard thud or bounced amongst the rocks collecting more damage with every tumble as it travels farther away from the safety of your hands.

How Not to Paint Your Nikon D90 Pink

Kai at DigitalRev was recently given the challenge of painting a Nikon D90 pink magenta. He chooses to dismantle the camera in order to paint individual components, but works on it as carefully as one would work on a steak. At one point he even gets an electric shock from the components, though we’re wondering why he didn’t simply remove the battery. The camera miraculously looks somewhat normal in the end, but several parts are broken in the process (LCD won’t turn on, and popup flash wont’ go down).

What’s interesting is that he takes the pink camera to the Nikon headquarters along with a hidden camera. His interaction with the customer service there is quite hilarious.

Here’s the video of the whole “adventure”. It’s a bit long, and might anger you, but you get to see the internals of a Nikon D90 if you find that sort of thing interesting!

So anyhow, painting your camera like this is definitely something to be avoided. If you’ve successfully painted your camera without breaking it, leave a comment letting us know!
