    I cannot participate - either way, at least one of my cameras would be offended .

    Neither. My OM-3Ti is a bronze-charcoal color.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    I do prefer basic black, but I'm not really picky that way. If it works and I can afford it I don't really care if it's one or the other. It's the camera's innards I am most interested in, not it's chassis. Though, I have thought about customizing an old zebra Spottie in something a bit crazy just for fun. If I had more than one body, eventually, I'd like to take the black leatherette off one and art it up. I see the Spottie as the Beetle of the old cameras and I really like old Beetles done up custom. I could see me having fun with one, replacing that old black leatherette with all silver or tie-dye faux leather or something.

    Carry over from "Spot News" (... alright ... "pappa*.."): Black body, as black as possible, with a black, or dark colored shirt/ jacket. -To remain as inconspicuous as possible. Usually carried over one shoulder ( ... unstable), or over the neck and and opposite shoulder, to the rear.
    Being "not noticeable" is a good thing in this work.

    I prefer the bodies in Black preferably enamel black on brass rather then black plastic. Didn't HCB use to cover his bodies in black tape ?who am I to argue with him.
