Hi Steven,

I hope you realize I was joking regarding the color. In my prior life, when I worked selling on-line ink jet printing equipment to print barcodes, my standard response to a prospects' question regarding what color inks were available was:
"You can get any color you like as long as it's black" Not many got the joke.

The classic silver and black film camera bodies of yesteryear are beautiful and lovely works of art from an aesthetics point of view.

Zig.

......and probably the ones who did not get it, never heard of Henry.

All my cameras are black though I've owned a couple that were silver & black, but in the end of it all, I like the basic 'all' black versions.

Well now Bob, I guess we're both showing our age. Don't think there are too many folks out there that realize that Henry Ford coined that phrase.

As a car buff, I certainly recognized it.
