It's that magic NASA tech they had decades ahead of time that let them do everything and anything the plot conspiracy theory requires . . . except land folks on the moon, dont'cha know?

Some interview material from Nick Hague about what the experience was like :

He makes it all sound very routine, but I'm sure, even with all the training, it was a bit of a scary moment...  :o

Given there are live video broadcasts of astronauts moving around the camera, it can not be a large 35mm film studio camera that are mostly used in the Apollo stage depictions.

A 35mm camera as usually depicted would also only be good for short takes, not the long ones we have.

Filming out in the desert would also create diffuse shadows as we see on earth, not the harsh shadows we see on the moon, and of course Apollo. usage of multiple stage lights, as usually depicted by satire, would have created multiple shadows from singular objects, something we do not see in Apollo footage.

Armstrong never struck me as 'emotionless'. Just someone not great in front of the camera. Some people are like that. Excellent at what he did but not someone who liked the spotlight. And he had this adorable shy smile. If I was a few decades older, I would have had such a crush on him.
Still, I definitively will be seeing this, despite its faults.

Very good, I bet if the sun angle was the same in the Hycon photo it would have almost the same resolution. the LRO photo appears higher resolution than it actually is due to the greater shadows.

Is that the LRO at maximum magnification?

To be fair it is just a screenshot of the LRO quickmap at maximum zoom, rather than the image itself.
