So in Columbia, black cameras are of little value?

I read arguments about black cameras being less noticeable, but I don't really buy that. Most modern expensive cameras are black, wouldn't thieves be more inclined to watch for black cameras and perhaps think that silver ones are old and of low value, or like the cheap silver point and shoot digital cameras?

As to which would be seen more easily on the street, I'd suggest that depends on the time of day and what you're wearing. We're talking satin silver here with black over most of the camera. Not rhinestones. Perhaps you should start wearing camo and paint the camera to match?
