... you get situations like the proverbal man selling the impenetrable shield and the spear that penetrates everything...



This is on Panasonic Singapore's first page on system camera. So next to each other are two "world's smallest and lightest micro4/3 bodies". =.="

Just thought this was worth a share :)

this ad is for STEADY shot


Btw this is not Canon offical ads, isn't it? Because AFAIK, Steady Shot is Sony's tagline for its image stabilization technology, not Canon's.

Correct me if I'm wrong =)

wow... is Canon saying that even in good lighting day as in that photo where you can shoot at higher shutter speed, it still needs image stabilizer? Gee glad I stick with Nikon all these years LOL.... *siam*

BTW... that would have been a better image for a Manfrotto Advertisement.

Because of the slogan:

Canon - De-Lighting you always.

lesser light = more need for image stabilization :bsmilie:

Erm yes in case most bloat-headed trolls think I'm probably missing the point, I happen to know my stuff. Just sharing something, it wasn't a question to clear up any doubt I had...

It's marketing.

It's almost always ridiculous.

Just pointing out that your point isn't really a point, because said manufacturer does protect itself with disclaimers. Usually the big companies aren't so careless.

But of course, if you don't like having the truth pointed out to you... Then I rest my case. Cheers.
