Okay thanks everyone, just got back home and ordered the black one from prodigital 2000. I just thought the lenses matched well with the white body so i turned to you all ...thanks again.

I voted "both". Stealthy is in the eyes of the beholder, I would think, and I can't really judge what others see.

Even as a pretty experienced photographer, from the perspective of a subject, I see small quiet cameras as being less intimidating and unobtrusive, but the attitude and manners of the photographer enter into the picture also, so sometimes the physical aspects of the camera matter even less. in the distant past, I viewed black cameras as more professional, but all of that has pretty much been tossed aside in the past few years. . .

I was originally attracted to the white, but chose the black for practical considerations. I tend to get dirty, so I don't do white well, in clothes, cars, or much of anything really. . .

Congratulations Clicker! The Q is so much fun to shoot. It is very hard to put down. My Panasonic LX2 sits unused along with my Olympus m4/3 ELP1. Only my Pentax K7 has logged regular time in the last 4 months. My other 6 DSLRs mostly sit.
thanks

Definetly taking the Q out tomorrow for Pentax Day. Not going to be an easy shoot since I have to work all day and it is supposed to rain the whole time. sigh.

Film and scan sounds like fun! Hadn't even considered that option. Dad got an Epson scanner for Christmas. Hmm. Not sure I could get the film developed in the 2 week time frame.

Make sure you do the firmware updates for the Q & lens. It really makes the Q perform. Also check out Wouter Brandsma's blog about the Q. Well worth the read.
thanks
