Just a quick post to share something that cracked me up… found it on a photog's group on Facebook, but is shared on my town's CraigsList…
This person seems to have something against DSLRs – not sure what s/he's advocating instead of a DSLR or what is the real intention (other than venting and getting something off your shoulders)
Also included in the post… a few choice images of size.
Maybe he's a mirrorless guy?
(And before I could even publish this… “This posting has been flagged for removal. ” and it is gone… but I did grab it!)
The basic body style of the dslr has been around for 30 years now looks like a Star Wars design for a star fighter…..
Every one of them looks like every other one of them……black and star fighter shaped only a small brand label separates them
Big Giant Bulky Heavy Black Molded Black Plastic Hanging from your Neck – Makes you look so 80's
Little old ladies over 80, that's who it impresses
Look up the Canon EOS 620, 650, and 630? They are the root evil of the design that won't go away!!!!!!!! Everything dslr you see today is just a clone from the 80's Canon design that later spawned the EOS 1…… 30 YEARS IS ENOUGH
Just a word, SO….wearing a huge ass dslr around your neck does not “dress” you for any part, real or imagined … it makes you appear like a walking Canon ad from the 80's in reality……
It's time to bury the dslr, it's ran the course and served the purpose for 30 years now and frankly I'm fed up with the look/style so it's time to notify you….the person perpetuating this tired, worn out, and so mundane style ….. bury the DSLR, put it down on the ground and walk away….walk away with a better self-esteem knowing you have broken yourself from a 80's marketing hype that has locked your brain …. wake up to 2017
The new icon for photography is anything but a black, molded plastic, streamlined, and capable of space travel look created by Canon in the 80's ….???
