I thought that the multi color camera bodies were nuts, but painting a perfectly good camera body take the cake. How about pink or light blue? Use the is a tool, not a neclace! Go get yourself some sort of oddment to wear around your neck and give the camera a break!

It seems that there are some members who feel very strongly towards my intention to paint my silver camera black, with some comments that I feel expressed some uncalled for sarcasm.

I currently live in Bogota, Colombia. I love photography, especially street photography. However, there is a real threat and danger in shooting in a place like bogota where one should not carelessly flash out your camera as for example recently someone was killed on the street just for his mobile phone.  Since I cannot and will not bring out my 5dmk3 to the street, my omd is my nearest option, but for reason above, I have real concerns and therefore wish to find a practical solution without giving up on shooting.

So without saying much more, please don't judge others based on limited information. I asked a simple question politely for the purpose of photography and it is obvious that some seem to be unable to give a straight answer.  Anyhow.
