The fuzz is propably about that if the camera would end up in certain hands, then certain people could prove that first moonshots are fake. It has something to do with the camera and its capabilities.. Why else they would act like that?

Most people are aware of how NASA shuns all of their former astronauts that go public with controversial claims..
This is another example of how they retaliate when they find a good way to do it, like this camera issue..
One of the earlier nasa directors has been denied his retirement pension and had his life ruined by nasa in retaliation for blowing the whistle on "controversial" issues..

It would be interesting to take that camera, load it up with film, stick it in an oven at 275 degrees and see if it will still take perfectly good shots. Then if that works, you could soak it in liquid nitrogen until it gets 275 degrees below 0. See if it works then.
