    Ha ha ha - call me wimp, but it was less than 40degF last night (which is cold, otherwise I would for sure).

    Edit: Hope Dave realises we're resurrecting old posts in his honour(?)

    Persoanally I think black tape over the logo is decorative, rather than the opposite. I've been thing of putting Subaru STi logos on my blank lens caps (already prefer using Nikon caps on my 52mm canon lenses, which occasionally draws stares... but they're better caps!)
    In this shot the only black tape that's needed is on whatever the red thing the girl in the foreground is holding.

    I think that I really ought to black out the name on my new RF; it's a bright red FED 5V...
    I don't understand why, but when I use it people just point and laugh

    Max Power, he's the man who's name you'd love to touch! But you mustn't touch! His name sounds good in your ear, but when you say it, you mustn't fear! 'Cause his name can be said by anyone!

    boy, now this is interesting, I have been shooting for over 20 now and have shot all over the world, and really never even thought about blacking my cameras out?

    Some time the simplest things are the hardest to grasp..

    When doing street work with my Leica I used to black out the red logos... It was a relatively small camera and in doing that I thought it might reduce the flack one sometimes gets as a 'professional' shooter... It doesn't fool those who are aware, but any help in being at little less conspicious is worth the effort for me... I also felt it might attract a bit less attention from those thieves that judge the camera's worth by size and/or name...

    If one has a large amount of gear, (multiple cameras, motor drives, long lenses, big camera bags, etc.), I don't think covering the logos for the reasons above would help...

    It also grates a bit on me that we end up being walking working bill boards for those we buy gear from for free... and many times we can't include any of their gear in our commercial and advertising work without written permission...
    Regards,

    I don't know, I just have never thought about it that way, I could care less what is in my hands, I am there to make the shot, and beings I paid for it, I have no desire to promote of demote their equipment, they have a job, that is to make gear I can shoot with, I have a job, that is to make the image, I have never found it to be a benefit or a liability because I shoot certain equipment..
