theory: CRITICAL OBSERVATIONS

This Stainless Steel Camera is a sign of the future: the divide between professional and consumer, instead of gradually going away, is going to become ever wider and more obvious. The professional equipment will record high-quality, ready-to-edit footage, and consumer devices will be more concerned with their fashion-sense than with the ability to control the quality or do much with the finished footage. I'm not surprised by this development: it makes sense if you want to gradually eliminate the consumer-as-producer, just gradually do away with consumer tools that are as good as the professional ones.
