WOW! With my own experience with cameras, that kind of capability just seems like magic. Magic and about $20,000. biggrin

In ten years that should be $2000.

Bought my very first mechanical keyboard a couple of days ago...

Wow!!! It's like typing on a honey soaked pillows while wearing the fluffiest mittens in the world compared to any other keyboard I've ever used.

There is no turning back now...

Mechanical keyboard? It sounds like something of this kind:

This is actually a telewriter model that I operated during my military service. They were not comfortable for typing.

If does it sounds like that "clickety click" of old IBM terminal keyboards, I agree, there's no way you can revert to newer ones:

Just cheap no-frills rubber dome keyboards.

For a short time back in the early 90's I had the IBM Model M keyboard. It was very robust and could probably be run over by a car and still work but the keys were so loud it drove me nuts. wacko

The one I bought (Roccat Suora), and most likely the majority of the modern mechanical keyboards are fortunately not as loud as the IBM Model M(onster) and its counterparts.

I can only imagine what an entire office using those would've sounded like:
moil moil moil moil moil moil moil moil
