If you are going for candids or wildlife shots, a black body is less likely to draw attention to itself than a silver one. If this is not a major consideration in the shooting you do, then it is mainly a matter of personal preference. The thermodynamic properties of silver versus black aren't likely to mean much unless you expect to leave your camera in full sun for an extended period, which probably isn't a good idea regardless of the camera body's color.:?

As for scratches and whatnot, the preferred color will most likely depend on the material in the camera body. If the camera is plastic, the black color will most likely extend all the way through the material whereas a faux metallic finish will be on the surface only. This is reversed for a metal camera body. You will probably be trading your camera in for a newer model in a few years before it can collect all that much in the way of dings and scratches anyway. If you don't or you use your camera very heavily, the camera's market value will have depreciated to the point where you won't get much for the camera regardless of its cosmetic condition.
