    Vacuous comment.

    Easy going "up market" step.

    Hard wood is often perceived as being better and more valuable than "lowly" plywood. Except when plywood is done ~real good~ it becomes a remarkable construction material, better in many ways than any hard wood. Check the $ for aircraft grade basswood based plywood.

    this is intrepid we're talking about, i'm sure whichever material they use will be mediocre at best.

    Ah, more vacuous “sound bite” commentary…

    it's a valid criticism of a company that's too cheap to even spend an extra buck to have light seals or even black paint around the edges of the film holder on at least one of their cameras. ignoring people's points and just repeating the same "vacuous" insult over and over is pathetically hypocritical. ignored.

    well, in fairness, your first comment, since it provides no context for your opinion may reasonably seen as vacuous, but your follow-up comment (ignoring the later ad hominem) does provide context though.

    I think you’ve mistaken “ignored” with “responded to with a long-winded response”.

    That can be a trap for some.
