i see no difference in "professionality" of the colors! I actually like the silver one better......

i don't see the big deal....people you are taking pictures of aren't gonna pick you to take the pictures because your camera is black.....they are gonna pick you because of the pictures you've previously taken.....

I suppose it was enevitable that a black rebel would appear and fair play to Canon for listening. With the release of the D70 though I thought they might have released a firmware upgrade to enable some extra features just to keep the fans interested. Who knows what is next. How about a camera that is truely professional and pays you for each shot? Then the colour wouldnt matter. Or how about taking a leaf from the mobile phone lot and have clip on covers ...... or even take some photos with it?

No, but the perceived professionalism (and the resulting cooperation) of black cameras exists nevertheless. I've shot over 300 weddings, with a mix of each (chrome and black) and the difference is discernable, whether some of you like it or not.

Nobody's whining, just stating the facts. If you're not a professional, then you're right; who cares what the color is.

I never said there was a difference in the photographs. And I could care less what color it was.

But the people that you're taking pictures of do care. If it looks "expensive", then that means you really are a "professional" and the quality of the images you're taking will turn out better than the camera they own, therefore more cooperation.

I know it sounds stupid, but believe me, at least in Chicago, it's a reality.
