    I noticed that the gold paint on my camera button had almost completely peeled off. Not sure how it happened other than wear and tear, but you'd think it would last longer than a month. Anyway, I finished peeling the gold paint off (it peeled off very easily, btw) and more than likely will paint it with matte black touch up paint. Might be a good thing, we'll see how it turns out.

    It's an off white color. I'm going to go buy some matte black touch up paint this weekend, and I'll post pics when its done.

    gotta say my #1 gripe about plastic is when it's painted. not looking forward to mine peeling.
