    Black cameras take better photos than chrome ones. The chrome causes reflections that interfere with the 3D effect which then conflicts with the bokeh and detracts from The Film Look, especially when shooting with The Leica. Black also absorbs errant photons that can degrade micro-contrast and exaggerate chromatic absolution within the Circle of Confucius. And, lastly, black cameras exhibit superior Scheimpflug Principles -- mainly on the Plane of Spain, of course, where it counts the most.

    Oh, and they're real chick magnets too.

    It makes so much sense now that you've explained it!

    We need more transparency on which is better for chrome films, though.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Hehe, I used to work with a guy who filled the white engraved lettering -- at least the brand -- with black India ink to try and make his Nikon's value less obvious when out in public.

    But black cameras don't have that cool "retro look", whatever the hell that is.
