Matte finish for any color or shade might be more discreet plus lower reflection if placed looking out a window. Function over “looks”. Was the limited edition black cam glossy or flat finish? If non-glossy it has my vote.
Maybe an option for the outdoor version of the Wyze Cam? The only color/shade would be a matte grey to black to maintain production cost. Guessing sales would come close to the v1 &2 model.
Look forward to Black version, but i had to improvise to reduce window glare for mine, and i used some $8 Con-tact paper, it is the Black chalkboard version, so it is dull and eliminated all the reflection for the ones i have. takes a little bit to trim real nice, but works well for $8 and 6 cameras with more left to use.
So I bought two white cams and shortly thereafter Wyze came out with the black devices. I inquired about swapping them at that time, and the response I received was cumbersome at best. So I kept the white cams much to my chagrin.
There is extra cost for black versus white and it also adjusts our manufacturing process (which adds extra cost). Some people have tried painting their Wyze Cams so you may want to ask about this in the #ask-the-community area.
Most of our V2s are looking out windows and the white body makes a noticeable reflection in the recorded video at certain times of the day. So I used a large Sharpie Pro to color just the fronts black.
No more annoying “whitewash” reflections in the glass and @fabulous is correct - they blend in so much better because they don’t look at all like cameras any more. With no distinctive round black lens showing up on a white background, they are just nondescript black squares in the windows. Even against white window treatments, they do not scream “SECURITY CAMERA HERE!” any more.
I left the rest of the camera stock white/gray to possibly reflect heat better.
Anyhow, my $0.02 worth is that it’s a lot easier to change the color of a white plastic camera with almost any color magic marker than it is to change the color of a black plastic one. And it takes all of two or three minute to do, even for someone as un-artistic as myself. The only trick is to let the permanent ink dry before carelessly handling the camera.
So I think the current white cameras offer more flexibility in concealment and blending in - when that is desired.
