FYI this paint did not bond very good to the cameras metal surface and scratched very easily. Next time I'm going to try clean surface with a good solution and use etching primer first. I May even try a different paint.
Perhaps use Plastidip?

Doesn't the 2231 exist in black like the 5231?

You need to let it dry for about three weeks. Rustoleum paint is dry to the touch in about an hour, but it actually takes a long freaking time for it to reach a full cure. The paint is oil based, when it dries to the touch, it is the solvents that have evaporated off. It takes a long time (two or three weeks) at ambient temperatures to fully cure. Ignore the instructions, they're useless.

Also, the oils in your fingers can cause problems so best to use latex gloves and some rubbing alcohol to clean it before painting.

You can speed up the curing process by putting it in your kitchen oven at about 200 degrees for about 2 hours.. I wouldn't recommend doing this to the electronic parts though.
