The Exoskeleton of the Sony A900

Like a Terminator edging toward you with half its face blown off, the Sony A900 dSLR only looks meaner without the candy plastic shell. [CNET photo by Stephen Shankland via Core77]

Hey, all you endoskeleton people—calm down. Take a deep breath. It's OK. John Mahoney and I actually had the same conversation, and he convinced me. In our books, it's an exo because it's really the outside of the camera, supporting and protecting the entire gadget, just coated a thin layer of paint (or in some parts, plastic). If you still aren't convinced, we can agree to disagree. Or you can go fuck yourselves. Either works.
