World's first camera placed on a basking shark

The newspapers reported a while back:

"World's first camera placed on a basking shark". 

It must have been a lot of trouble, to get that camera out of the museum. I think they've outdone themselves. 

Mounting that cumbersome nineteenth century contraption onto that shark might be all cool and "steam punk", but it's cruel at best. They should've used a brand new camera, the latest technology. Just because these scientists can do something doesn't mean that they have to do it.
