Who at Canon thought that this carbon-look backside of the screen would look great?
Doesn't really fit to the rest of the camera at all. But apart from that it seems to be a solid Sony A6100/ZV-E10 killer.

I actually found the fact they wrote "Canon" on the backside of the LCD a slick idea, but yeah, the carbon pattern doesn't fit the rest of the camera.
