Black or Chrome?
poll to follow
Whichever is cheapest, or happens to come my way.
Black and Chrome. Years ago black why most of my small cameras are black but today it does not matter.
The pink one
Mostly black -- but not all that fussy!
I prefer all black but since I'm buying mostly second hand, my choices are mostly based on availability.
Black with a touch of chrome, a la Hasselblad.
I'll have one of each, please
Black! I've never seen a Chrome F100!!
Black, though some of my favorite cameras are chrome (not always much choice when a good used bargain comes along)...
I think black really does get noticed less, except in the case of huge AF monsters...
What ever color it comes in, so long as it does what is expected of it.
Be they yellow-black-or white, they are precious in my sight--Ricky loves the little cameras of the world!

I used to prefer all black until I got a chrome spotmatic. The Nikon F looks nice in chrome too.
Actually, my Minolta XE-1 is both. A chrome top with a black prism cover. The US designated XE-7 is an all black version of the same camera.
I've always prefoerred the black, though I own both. My favorite is a Black Nikkormat EL. There must be a reason that starting with the F3 I think all "pro" Nikons are black.
I use to like chrome but there is now just something that I like with black cameras. Love my Nikkormat FTn in black!
I voted for black because I usually like that on 35m cameras. On the other hand I like black and black & chrome for Hasselblads and I mix parts of both.
I have a black and a chrome Olympus OM4Ti, but if I was knocked down I would prefer people to find the black version in my camera bag.
I should also add that when TV's had the chrome finish I refused to buy a new one.
has a black paint m4 and now i've got a black chorme m7. i prefer the black paint over the chrome black.
Chrome... it wears better and reflects the heat.
Chrome - because they don't make it anymore (well, except for $5,000 Leicas)
Black, of course! Everybody knows that black is better! That's why the pros use them??
What are we talking about, anyway? Mag wheels on cars?
I like my black F, which is really more brass than black.
That's because you likked off the black!
With chrome accents.
( I can be dreadfully indecisive... ).
I kinda favor black, but I do have a couple cameras that are chrome.
Black is classy but chrome is durable.
