If the design of the camera is so timeless and iconic, why do you need the model?

Well the creatives are suppose to use classic icons, i.e. James Dean (a look alike featured here) to say TIMELESS.
Nevertheless it took some time for me to realize that so I guess it is not a good piece of communication.
Also the B&W photography could have been better executed.

Yeah, after a bit, and reading the info, I finally focused on the camera, not the movie star lookalike or poor contrast. Then I saw that it does have a classic, timeless look. That metaphor, with half-hidden fake stars, is not working. In fact, it cheapens the product.
