Anticompetitive? Haha, now I've read it all. Give people more than what they expect for a steal of a price and some will still complain. Get a grip. Sell the dongle on ebay or buy another 'more competitive' camera for just over a grand that does internal 4k 12bit RAW and 10 Bit ProRes at 60p etc.
The only thing ant competitive about BM is that they have just blown the competition out of the water.
Argh, that's why I try to avoid forums like this. People always whinging!

You do realize a lot of that metal is exposed and just painted black, right? In case you've never handled one, its not completely covered in plastic. So that would fit your definition of a body. As far as I know, there aren't many exposed bones on the human body. There are plastic bits tacked onto it, but its still the body, your responses are just some BS semantics "I'm right, you're wrong" game. I'll refrain from further comments on a BM P4k thread.

There is not one f ing ounce of Magnesium alloy that touches your hand when you hold the camera. It is All Plastic you hold, every square inch of it. Jesus I think Kindergarten has let out. The "Exterior Material" is not a metal, zero of it.

To quote the Canon website regarding the 1DC "Exterior Material Magnesium alloy" We all know that these magnesium alloy bodies have coatings over them, and whether or not that is plastic doesn’t matter in the conversation. In this thread of conversation, you yourself referenced “Nikon D810 has a Plastic, carbon chassis”. What matters here is how robust the carbon fiber reinforced chassis will be in comparison to magnesium. I don’t have any doubt that this material will be perfectly useable, I agree with you in that. However, I would appreciate it if you could realize when you are trying to make a point simply for your ego. It is important to see the difference in use case between the covering around the camera and the camera chassis. While as a covering it may be perfectly fine to use plastics, it is also reasonable to suggest that this may not be suitable as the chassis as well, especially in a professional use case.
