    Chrome, lovely chrome.

    Black is out of my budget here in Japan.
    Those who know, shoot film

    I say chrome, by far. Black is prone to getting hot on warmer days. I tend to find chrome prettier, too, especially in a panda bear design, like that of a Nikon FE.

    Black has always been my preference.
    All my Canon's (A1, AE1-Program, F1) have been black; my EOS system followed suit - although it doesn't actually come in any other colour, so I'd be stuck if I really loved chrome!

    Same for my GS1 and soon to purchase Horseman - black all the way . . . . . .

    I love black, but for SLRs it's just not the right thing. With all the black plastic D-SLRs around, I like a little chrome to make the difference visible. Also, I like to look and feel a little old-fashioned sometimes and chrome helps

    I'm Asian male so when it comes to hair I prefer black over chrome

    Hair is better then a chrome dome.

    But I'm seeing more gray now

    It depends on the camera generally for 35mm cameras I prefer black I love the matte black finish on my Canon F1N AE and the glossy piano black on the Canon EF and A1 I think Leica used to have a patent process to make black chrome that was secret, I don't have one but I would prefer a Hasselblad in chrome.

    Old stuff, chrome.
    New stuff, black, of course.

    For the most part, black. But, I will take chrome if it's the only option. Partly because the black finish wears easier, so it's easier to tell which camera has been used more. My black Nikons (F, F2A, F3P, FM2n, and F4) all show at least a little wear. The Pentax doesn't, since it's chrome.
