Huh?? "...miniaturization beyond the tecnology ot that time."?????
Who says the camera used for the live Apollo 11 step off the ladder was miniaturized? You, it seems.
The camera was added as a sort of last-minute idea. It was, obviously, off-the-shelf B/W, but it did its job.
As to seeing it live, you youngsters have no idea how incredible it was. This, I think, is the crux of the problem with Moon 'hoax' believers.
They are influenced by a combination of bad science knowledge and a misunderstanding of real space flight because of the baloney they see in common
science fiction movies.
For instance, I remember slapping my forehead with my hand first time I saw "Star Wars". Spaceship 'fighters' flying in space like airplanes!
It was ridiculous. (As you know, George Lucas used films of WWII dogfights as a template for a lot of those sequences).
Eventually, though, I caved in and recognized it for what it was: A fantasy-driven mind-numbing popcorn-selling piece of pablum. Very lucrative
pablum, but dreck, nonetheless.
If you want to see a more realistic portrayal of real space, (within the limitations of filming on Earth) try "Apollo 13". OR, for ACTUAL real
space, get SAT TV and watch the NASA channel. You can see live EVAs from the ISS and the Shuttle, when she's on orbit.
