    1. Ouch! The pain of downvotes!

      (I wasn’t implying that Fassbender wasn’t suitable; it was just a sideways comment on all the actors that have come and gone in this role – it wouldn’t surprise me if he drops out.)

      Anyway, I’ll take my punishment like a mensch!

    1. Not to mention exiting the consumer tech innovation area they used to be known for. Even in their last bastion of pro broadcast gear there are plenty of alternatives now.

      What I found hard to forgive is their tendency to glacially and deliberately improve products in small calculated iterations so you would be forced to buy new cameras in the future. I still own a $5,000 Sony HD HDV camera from 2005 that could have easily done true 24p but was only designed for various interlaced formats. (I HATE INTERLACED VIDEO!!!)

      I remember how many were infuriated and incredulous by this at the time. This didn’t bode well for future Sony purchases or loyalty. And hasn’t.
