Surely if it ate the camera, that would be even more prize footage ? People rarely see the outside of giant squid, let alone the inside ...
There's an Arthur C. Clarke short story about a scientist in a deepsea submersible who notices squid communicating with light flashes and whose last words to the surface are something like, "Here comes big brother".
Hmmmm, giant squid rings!
As has been pointed out many times here before: you can't eat the giant ones. They are full of ammonia.
Not ammonia. Ammonium chloride. Otherwise known as salmiak, which is used to make a wide variety of candies. I bet these squid are yummy.
if the squid was full of ammonia, you could counteract this by marinating it in vinegar for several hours. i don't think this works for ammonium chloride though.
