My kid sister turns 50 next month (I hope she’s not reading this). Her husband said she’d like to have a DSLR. Considering our experience (5 Nikon DSLRs, 1 Canon in the extended family) and budget, my choice is a D3200 with a 18-105mm lens plus a bag and PSE or LR.

My question is: red or black body? P&S cameras (like cell phones) have been sold in a choice of colors for years but a choice of color in a DSLR is a new phenomenon. Questions:

1. If I choose red, is this a signal that I take her as a person who doesn’t take photography seriously?
2. Or a signal that she’s a person that doesn’t take photography *too* seriously (notice the distinction, this is my intention)? She’s not a camera freak but she’s a doctor and as such, capable of using sophisticated instruments when required. And her former SLR was a Nikon F-401 (4004 in the USA).
3. Is color in a DSLR a trend that will go out of fashion?

Regards, Antero
