My experience between my silver X100 and black XP1 is that the last one is much more discrete in the crowd...

To be truthful, I'm not sure if a participant in an activity (such as shooting in a crowd) can honestly evaluate how discreet he/she really is.  The photographer's mental state, physical stance, eye contact, etc., might be as important as the color of the camera.

Now...If you happen to be wearing all black, then the silver camera would probably be discrete.  With the same black clothing, a black camera might be more discreet.
