10 Pin Cam   (+7, -3)  [vote for, against]
Because the most interesting aspect of bowling is obscured

An overhead view of the pins getting knocked down, replayed in slow-motion on the scoreboard.

Thought this was maybe going to be that cheesy 1970's multifaceted filter look for pinhole cameras.

And I thought it would be a camera set deep inside the finger holes of the ball, a bit like they use in The Big Lebowski.

They have this on TV, I think also some bigger alleys might have this feature as well.

They have bowling on TV? [shudder]

Correction: They don't have _nearly enough_ bowling on TV

You're kidding, right? That's about as dull as watching people play Texas Hold'em on TV.

Yeep, been there, seen that.

or golf, or billiards, or curling, or marathons, or....

I regret to inform you that, among those of us who actually watch bowling on TV, this is quite well-known.

At our bowling alley there are several lanes of SUPER TURBO BOWLING with video cameras capturing the action and an instant replay of the ball hitting the pins. Baked.

I first thought this was going to be a camera with a 10-pin connector. Then I thought that wasn't interesting enough to post here, so it must be a mechanical cam that has 10 pins in it for some reason, maybe for configurability, like a mechanical light timer.
