Nikon D5100 Commercial with a Twist

Nikon is running a new “Man of Action” commercial starring Ashton Kutcher in the US that features the same “twist” as the Olympus PEN commercial we shared in the middle of 2010. Sorry for the out-of-sync audio (let’s just pretend it’s dubbed).

    To me, the advert promotes it as a camera designed not for stills, but for moving images. Was that intentional?

    LOL try using the real time focus without a plugin mic. It sounds like two mosquitoes going at it after prom!

    I think they forgot to mention the addition of a few grand worth of lights and post production comes packaged separately.

    I think it’s a nice entry level camera, perfect for those who never owned a SLR.

    Well we all know how AF works … loud and not accurate. However, Nikon’s latest models do AF much better, but not like it shows in the video.

    Can this camera shot stills? Seems like it’s ignored…

    Not even Nikon manages to pronounce Nikon properly :S

    LOL… ¬†I first thought the audio wasn’t synced to replicate the older Kung Fu movies

    Would it hurt Nikon to upload it in 1080p? That is what they’re selling right?

    Ashton Kutcher sucks. I hate that he’s the Nikon spokesperson.

    Well now YouTube is saying that the account has been suspended due to copyright infringement… I guess it was a little too much like the PEN commercial!
