Canon Rebel XTi DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (OLD MODEL)
Used & New from: $219.76
Why is there such a price difference between silver/black XTi? Is there a difference in performance or quality between the silver XTi & the black XTi? Is the cost due to aesthetics?

Nope, black is popular baby!.
The black case technically will be less reflective (visable) in enviornments where you would not want to intrude on your subjects (nature/war zones etc).

Only difference is color. Price is based on supply and demand. When there's a bigger demand for black, its price goes up. When there's more silver ones hanging around unsold, their price goes down. I wonder why Canon still makes the silver ones though. Maybe because the Rebels have traditionally been silver from the beginning when they were simple film SLRs.

The silver looks cheaper to me.

Oh, I dunno. My old silver Rebel with black battery grip used to draw some attention and compliments while the guy next to me with the basic black Nikon got none (even though he actually had the better camera). ;)
