Why the big frame on Hero6 and not a built inn finger mount like the Fusion?

[ Edited ]

Seriously making the Hero 5/6 protected from the elements was perpaps a good idea - if you disregard the lower qulity sound. But the seriously big "frame" thing is almost equally big to a polycarbonate housing. So the advantage of a waterproof camera in itself disappears almost completely when you need to munt it.

 

On the Fusion howevere there is only a smal finger mount connected to the bottom and not a big cumbersom frame. Why not do the same on the Hero-cameras?

Fusion was released after the Hero 5/6, so it could be the way the Hero 7 mounts. Personally I prefer the Frame as it gives quite alot more protection to the camera if it does take a tumble
